Re: What's everyone doing now we've got so much time to spare?

I am still in my workshop as by myself anyway and i have timber to get doors and windows i need to make. Bizarrely, this situation means i have a chance to catch up as i cannot fit stuff at some jobs and despite being able to get most supplies i need, my double glazed units are delayed as roman glas...

Re: A new frame, a new painting and an attempt at gilding

That's a great frame and painting and frame compliments painting perfectly.

Re: My choice

If i were the customer, i would be delighted. Choice of frame and mount works and although i would have thought the small picture would detract from larger print, it really works.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Starting out - stocking up

I have used wessex since i started framing. I remember that they were great helping to start. I selected a decent selection of mouldings and they gave me chevrons for them. If you get their catalogue, and make a list, i am sure you will find them helpful. In terms of stock, i keep as little as possi...

Re: Guitar Framing

Just another thought. It would be worth using 12mm mdf or ply (possibly even 18mm), but have it rebated to sit neatly in the back of the case. That will make the whole case rigid and very strong. If i were doing it and customer had no issue with cost and gave me free reign, i would rebate backboard ...

Re: New frame, had a bit of an experiment.

Hi Matt, Love the painting and a really well finished frame. If i am being honest (which i imagine you are looking for), the frame is a bit too heavy for the painting. It is not the width of the frame, but i think the inner lip painted black does it for me. My eye is drawn away from the art towards ...

Re: 'Canvas' stretching

If material more like a bedsheet, perhaps sewing it around a board as you would a tapestry. That would give it a good even tension and there would be less risk of paint cracking.

Re: Is it possible to run a business without a landlines

As long as you have decent 4g signal where you are, you will be fine. I have a sim only deal with 10gb for about £15 per month which i more than i ever get close to.

You can also tether your phone to your laptop and run the laptop using your 4g signal.

Re: circular frame

Geospectrums cnc will be a great solution and i would imagine better cost wise than what i could do. If you need harder timber, i can joint boards (i am using 200mm wide oak boards for a door currently, so would only be a single joint) and i make circle using a router with a circle jig. I could also...

Re: which Air Compressor,

Any 24 litre compressor will be fine. It just won't be silent, but it will work well. I have an sgs 6 litre compressor which i use when i am out on a site with nail guns and it only cost £70. I chuck it in the back of my truck and it seems well made. SGS do a 24 litre for £85 inc VAT.
