All these methods rely on accurate measuring, alignment & centering of frames with the possibility of human error. My method eliminates any need for measurement for frame spacing, squareness or centering as it is all part of the jig. All you need is a table saw to cut a slot down the build board and an MDF board for centering . Then cut up the MDF board (I used a piece of primed MDF baseboard) into 94mm lengths, assuming you are using 6mm frames, for 100mm spacing. Everything is press fit so no screws are even needed except for the end frames and spacers. See these posts for pics and descriptions.

BTW, the 2x3 frame below the laminate covered Jig allows the tilting of the whole model at a 45 angle which assists with the building process.
Also I have covered the laminate with packing tape to make epoxy spills and drips easy once the model is finished and removed from the build jig.

Agreed, and if I had woodworking tools that could handle that size stock I would probably try it.

Cheers,
