I have to admit, I'm new at woodworking. I would like to know what the best tool would be to make small wood picture frames used for needlepoint canvases.

Hi there,
If you already have the frame stock (and are not planning on making your own) then use a miter box, power or hand, to make the miter cuts. More delicate frame pieces may require that you use a hand miter box. There are several on that market that are quite accurate. Do a search on the web for more info on specific brands. Good luck.....Mark Hammond

You need accurate miters. The cheap hand miters are off by several degrees. Avoid them!
