Building the Frames Build the bottom and top frames from the 1×2 cedar strips. You will be butting the ends together, therefore no mitering is essential.
Fasten 2 26″ strips to 2 13″ strips to create each rectangular frame. (You’ll have to make sure that the length remains 26″; to do this, but the ends of the shorter strip against the lengthier strips. The thickness of the 2 longer strips will lend an inch to each end of the smaller strips, boosting the measurements of theirs to 16″. Do this at each end of the lengthier strips to create a rectangular frame 26″ long and 16″ wide.)
