    $\begingroup$ Can you articulate your question a little better please? What do you mean two frames? Also please describe what you mean by working inward toward each other? $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Jul 14 '16 at 22:00
  • $\begingroup$ I know what he means. He's using two objects and trying to join them into a door frame. There are many methods to do this, One way is to use a cube scaled to the outer parameters of your frame, and then to subdivide it or loop-cut it to mark out the inner opening, then just delete the faces and bridge the open faces along the inside. $\endgroup$ – Anthony Forwood Jul 14 '16 at 23:25
  • $\begingroup$ @maiira in the future crop your images and plese include in the image only information relevant to the question. To make a screen capture within blender, you can press Crl F3 and then choose to save the whole interface as an image or just the active window. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jul 14 '16 at 23:56

Here's a pretty solid workflow if you don't desire to use multiple objects in the creation.

I'm posting the image sequence for now, so I don't mess that part up, then coming back to give the commentary per image.

  1. Shift+A >> Mesh >> Plane.

enter image description here

  1. Tab to enter edit mode.

enter image description here

  1. I to inset the active face the desired amount.

enter image description here

  1. Delete >> Only Faces.

enter image description here

  1. Result of Deleting the face (giving you the major frame profile).

enter image description here

  1. A to select all faces.

enter image description here

  1. E to extrude the desired overall frame thickness.

enter image description here

  1. Ctrl+R >> 2 >> LeftMouseButton >> RightMouseButton

enter image description here

  1. Click on the Face Mode icon/button.

enter image description here

  1. Z >> Select the inner ring of faces (as shown).

enter image description here

  1. With your cursor just outside the outer edge of the frame E >> S >> Move your mouse toward the center of the frame the desired amount >> LeftMouseButton

enter image description here

  1. Click on the Edge Mode icon/button.

enter image description here

  1. Select the Edge Loops at both the Inner Top & Inner Bottom of the frame.

enter image description here

  1. Ctrl+B >> Move your mouse outward the desired amount >> Either type the number of segments & hit Enter OR scroll up on the scroll wheel of your mouse the desired amount & LeftMouseButton.

enter image description here

  1. Hit Tab & you are complete if you desire a 4-Sided frame.

enter image description here

  1. If your desire is to have a 3-Sided frame >> Tab to enter edit mode. >> C >> Select the bottom most horizontal edges of the frame.

enter image description here

  1. Delete >> Only Edges & Faces.

enter image description here

  1. The result is two empty holes that we must repair/fill.

enter image description here

  1. Loop Select the left most hole. >> F to fill.

enter image description here

  1. Loop Select the right most hole. >> F to fill.

enter image description here

  1. Select both Edge Loops again.

enter image description here

  1. S >> Y >> Numpad 0.

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ From Steps 18-21 the profile looks wrong because I accidentally did some steps twice on my end trying to put the document together. I fixed this and the steps are good. $\endgroup$ – Rick Riggs Jul 15 '16 at 1:26
