Corner Bracket Assembly Instructions:
You will need: Miter Saw, Electric Drill, 5/64 Drill Bit, Wood Glue, Phillips Head Screw Driver.
1.Cutting the Frame Sides to length: Measure the art glass height and width; cut two frame sides 2″ longer than the height; cut the other two frame sides 3/4″ shorter than the width. Pre-assemble your frame and brackets (without screws or glue) around the art glass to insure proper fit. **Do not force the pieces to fit into the bracket. As wood is a natural product, it can vary in size a bit. You may need to sand down the ends of the frame sides slightly, so they will fit into the bracket easier. Snug is fine, but too tight may cause the bracket wood to crack.
2.Assembling the Frame (Do all assembly on a flat surface): Spread a few drops of wood glue on all six surfaces inside one Corner Bracket; push one frame side into bracket snugly; follow the same process with the other brackets being sure to install the art glass after assembling three Frame Sides, then assemble the fourth Frame Side and remaining brackets. Allow glue to dry before you pre-drill screw holes with a 5/64 drill bit. Screw in special screws to complete your frame. *NOTE: For ease in installing the screws, run the threads over a bar of soap or wax. For easy hanging, try our chain hooks.
