Raw Basswood

This is a completely different frame. I realized too late that I hadn't taken a picture of the actual frame after joining, but this is a similar frame from a few years ago. Let's pretend it's the same one. In most cases, I start with raw basswood, which I buy already milled to shape. I sometimes do my own milling, but it's not cost/time effective. The folks I buy from have almost any profile I could need, all ready to go. I cut the frame into four mitered legs on my saw, and join the four corners. Sometimes I join my corners with woodglue and nails, sometimes with a specialty high-strength hot melt adhesive.
