A friend of mine, who is not an avid woodworker, asked me about the possibility of making frame stock for pictures. He wants to make his own instead of buying from larger manufacturers. I suggested he look into the planer/moulders available. But, methinks, he will have to make a very substantial investment into a planer/moulder (about $1,000.00), plus a variety of knives and then the wood needed.
Enneybody here with experience along these lines? Is his idea feasible for a sideline business or should I suggest he just forget it?
