I call them hallway frames since they hold pictures small enough to be viewed at close range like in a hallway(?). Three 4x6 pics will fit in these.
Grab some scrap out of the bin and mill square.
I set the fence for 3/4" longer than the pieces I am going to cut.
Add a stop block of a known 3/4" thickness.
I always make ZCI's in batches so I will have a fresh one when I want it; they last through many projects but, for these items I decided it was time to replace. Use the fence stop block for the long cuts. Put a stop block on the sled and do the small cuts to length.

Yet another type of cut that the Grr-Ripper makes safe and comfortable; ripping the 7/8" x 1/4" parts for the trim
And in a little less than an hour, you have a batch of parts for four frames, two mahogany and two walnut. So . . . why is it that it takes me almost two months to make a bookcase???
Alas, you also end up with a smaller bunch of scraps . . . .
These are great for details like wooden knobs, hinges, miter splines, plugs . . . . or eventually, kindling
