How to Make a Deckle For Paper Making

Products Used

Making a homemade paper deckle is a real quick and easy project that anyone can do. If you don’t have power tools you could make this paper making deckle with old picture frames. I’m using some scrap 1/2” baltic birch plywood and gluing the mitered corners with CA glue and staples. The screen used on this deckle is just ordinary aluminum window screening. The top half of the deckle is used as the paper mold and friction fits on top of the bottom half of the deckle.
