Re: Moulding Chevrons wanted

Too many :giggle: :Slap: I started with about 50 from Lion as well, plus I cut my own, but over the years I would think I have about 250 to 300 on show, but I have taken down a load if not selling, but end up choosing new mouldings to replace them, sometimes (or a lot of the time) you can see the cu...

Re: Wrapped Bevels & Artwork

If the undermount/ backing mount and the window mount with the wrapped bevels are made exactly the same size, there is really no need to hinge them together, once you have made both the undermount and window mountil with the wrapped bevels, place the artwork on the undermount, position where you wan...

Re: Moulding Chevrons wanted

I echo Mark's remarks about finger jointed pine, it's normally off cuts from the mill as I have had joints less than 6" apart, it has really hard grain, which when you join it can make the v-nails follow the hard grain and shoot out the back edge of the frame, normally on the last corner to be joine...

Re: Moulding Chevrons wanted

I don't rely on moulding chevrons from supplies, just order 1 length of each of the mouldings you want to use, then make your own chevrons, A . you can make them whatever size you want B you can see how that moulding cut, is it okay or a pain to cut :head: C you can see if it's easy to join or a pai...

I normally use two mounts to sandwich the image, glaas on the front, plastic on the back, (so that when the cutomer hang it from the nail in the wall, if they are heavy handed the nail will not break the glass), if using a single frame, I usually use bendy tabs to hold everythng in the frame, then j...
