DIY Woodworking Puzzle Frame

The secret of this is buying little square dowels and gluing them to 1x2s.  You need a pocket to put the puzzle in, so without a router this seemed like the best way to do it.

After you have the pocket, the frame is simply mitered together and glued.

The site has shadows thanks to cssmatic is my new favorite site. Shadows were a bit of a mystery to me Before. I would try to match colors and mess with the blurs and offsets to get the right look. However it just didnt seem that real.  Inset shadows were out of the question, and shadows were either black or a darker color than the background color.
