I am in the midst of looking to create a few Picture Frames, all varying in sizes. As such, I have been looking into what would be the best Width for the accompanying Rabbet.
From what I can see, 3/8" seems to be a common figure for Rabbet Depths regardless of the Width of the Frame.
Would I be right in thinking that using a relative figure instead, would be a more ideal scenario? For example 40% of a Frame's Width?
Am I overlooking something here or is it just a case that my thought process here is 'idealistic' in that a relative size would be ideal but the reality is that it would be unlikely to have a Router Bit to accommodate every relative size?
Apologies if this seems like an overly simplistic question but I am fairly new to Woodwork and would like to understand the 'theoretical' side prior to committing to the relevant Tools and Materials.
