How to Assemble Floater Frames
Most floater frames are too thin to be assembled with a slot and peg system. Rather, they are assembled by gluing and clamping.
Place a small dot of wood glue on each miter face and spread it thinly and evenly over the miter. Do this in succession at each joint. Then press the four corners together.
Bring the corner brackets against the corners of the frame.
Tighten the band clamp by pulling the band through the housing.
Continue tightening the band clamp around the frame. As the clamp tightens some glue may squeeze out at the joint. Wipe it away with a wet rag, followed by a dry rag. The glue is water soluble and will clean up easily with water.
Wait for the glue to dry (60 min) before loading the frame.
