You'd probably find one of Jan's courses useful.

Re: Another fascinating packaging thread

I only use blue foam corners if it's being shipped, otherwise I recycle all the suppliers bubblewrap. If you want blue corners, buy it in lengths and cut to fit removing a V, to make it turn the corner. The big reveal is an important part of the customer experience. I agree with others, if the corne...

Re: 2 things...canvas backing and which underpinner?

I can highly recommend a Cassese CS88 and you can pick one up for the same price if you're lucky. It will be far superior to the M1 imho.
Never seen or heard of a black frame covering, other than paper.

Re: Looking for advice on "Buyers Protecion"

I have bought small items from the forum with no problems. Apart from a morso bought from a supplier and couriered, with no problem, everything else was collected. Most framing equipment, in my opinion, is so delicate, that I wouldn't trust a courier or their insurance to ensure that its not thrown ...

Re: Chop service and underpinner

"...am I missing anything about the process that should raise flags?" Perhaps consider the size of try frame mouldings that you would like to underpin. If the tall edge width is 10mm or more you should be fine, if its an 8mm or less then I use a dovetail router on the tall back and underpin the shal...

Re: Hello from Kent

Have a look for a Keencut Ultimat Gold or a Fletcher 2000. Both older models. I use a Flatcher, but Keencut is British so parts are easier and quicker to source. Friends who use the new Keencut model, say they prefer this older model.
Good luck.

Re: Does anyone recognise this?

The grain sounds like Obeche and I'm wondering if they've reversed a moulding and inserted an mdf tray at the base?
Looks like maybe you could cut down a R+H A344?
