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

Tile 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 can be used for
this project.

Two lengths cut at
14-1/2 inches

Two lengths at 12-1/2
inches.

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 is 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 are used.

Sand all the pieces to a
smooth finish.
