The tile used for this project
was 13-1/2 inches by 12-3/4
inches.

The tile was left over from a floor
tiling project.

The frame size for your project
will be determined by the
size of your tile.

1-3/4 by 3/4 inch oak stock
was used for this project.

Two lengths cut at 14-1/2 inch
and two lengths at 12-1/2 inch.

Cut a channel to support the
tile, the full length and a bit
wider than the tile at 3/8 of
an inch deep.

The leg feet are 2-1/2 inches
long, and they taper up at 45
degrees to make a 1 inch rail.

A 5/32 inch drill was used to
drill the pilot holes for the
screws, followed with a 1/8
inch pilot hole in the mating
stock.

The outside of the 5/32 inch
hole is countersunk to bury the
screw head.
1-1/2 inch tapered head wood
screws were used.




Sand all the pieces to a
smooth finish.
