Ok Bryan and Allen have tipped my scale and its time i venture forth into the frame and panel world.
Can you guys offer suggestions as to a decent set. I dont intend buying twice and i aint going into the furniture business but i do wish to have a good set that will last. Only 1/2 " shanks.
There are so many i have seen out there i cannot tell what to look for and who is got the "it"
Any recommendations preferably would like to know you either own it or have used it and would choose it therefore if you had need.
Thanks in advance
Also what do you use for spacing when it comes to putting your panel into the frame. I have seen rubber balls and what looks like rubber rod tappered at each end.
I presume the go to approach is also to finish the panel before one inserts it to cater for woodmovement is this neccessary?
