Centering Picture in Floater Frame

One of the most difficult aspects of floater framing, is centering the canvas stretched photo within the floater frame. This is because there is an arbitrary gap between the photo and frame. I tried several approaches until the current method shown in the figure below. I purchased 1/2" square dowl rods and inserted them in the spaces on all sides of the photo. This is done with the photo facing downward so the the screws can be inserted while the rods are in place. The rods slip out easily when finished.
