5. Next, in order to size down the wood lumber pieces to the size of the pre-printed photo canvas, line up the cooper/white pieces to the edges of the canvas and mark a 45-degree angle from each corner

6. Line up the marked 45-degree angle on each lumber piece in the miter box which will help cut a clean 45-degree angle. Use the handsaw to cut along the marked angle until it comes off completely

7. Next, apply wood glue to the 45-degree angles on the four copper/white frame pieces and connect to one another

8. Use the nail gun to insert 2 brad nails in each corner in order to secure the corners from the outside
