Attach Frame Pieces to Plywood

Slide each of the four frame pieces around the edges of the plywood panel. Next, use nail gun to secure frame pieces to the plywood.

Measure, Mark, Cut and Attach Fascia

To add graphic separation between each of the painted portions of the design, 1/2” strips of 1 1/2”-wide and 1”-wide trim will be cut to size and attached as fascia.

First, use measuring tape to determine the proper length and width for each fascia, then mark it to size using pencil. Next, cut fascia strips to size with circular saw.

Add wood glue to the back of all fascia pieces, then firmly position them into place, allowing at least one hour for glue to dry before moving onto the next step.

Attach Hinges

Use drill to attach hinges to left and right sides of frame, with the center of each hinge sitting approximately 6” from the top and bottom edges.
