The two profiles shown above are for mouldings #660 and #311. The first is has a rabbit depth of 9/16" and the second has a rabbit depth of 1". I will be using these two mouldings in the example below. The page for each moulding shows the maximim thickness that it can support. There are different maximums shown for Changeable and Value Frames.
The frame has to accomodate the thickness of the glazing, the backing and your item. For a Changeable frame it also has to accomdate the thickness of the mats.
The glazing, mats and backing are each roughly 1/8" thick. That means that for a Value Frame, 1/4" (3/8" for a Changeable Frame) of the rabbit is taken before you add your item. For the two mouldings above that leaves 5/16" for moulding #660 and 3/4" for moulding #311. This is for a Value Frame. Another 1/8" is used for the mats in a Changeable Frame.
All the above pictures are for a Value Frame but the same holds true for a Changeable Frame. It will require an additional 1/8" for the thickness of the mats.
