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: Guitar Framing

Just had a delivery which might make a chunky frame! 20200124_140703.jpg It will depend on depth required and what finish you want. If wood finish, i would make an oak frame, i have just had some 250mm wide oak boards i have used for a job, but they can be any size you want. I would do some dovetail...

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.

Re: First gilt frame. Feedback please.

I think that looks fantastic. I am around the same stage as you learning to gild, and i would not post my first attempt which was awful! To me, it looks properly aged, i do agree that adding red bole to the next one may help. However i did use red bole, but i clearly need more practice. Obvioulsly, ...

Re: Trying a new finish

Nice finish. It is a personal preference, but i prefer liberon gilt cream over varnish particularly for finishing over a colour like black. The key with hand finishing in my opinion is never stop experimenting. I have just found a new combination which i can post after Christmas day, but it was a co...

Re: Mounting options?

The 2 obvious options are matching the white paper or blue as you suggested. Both would work and it would be personal preference, but i think i would go white. I thunk the sides on show are quite big and would be too much blue, given the individual small pieces of blue in the papercut. Just my thoug...

I would create a box frame whether it was going on the wall or sit on a a piece of furniture. I think if i were having to choose and the budget ran to it, i would make a boxed frame. I would go with a similar white to the item as mountboard on the inside and would mount a small hidden led light in t...
