    My carved picture frame for the swap

    Hi there.

    Next saturday I am going to my in-laws to spend 10 days, I thought I could start my swap project and take it there to work on it in order not to die of boredom. as I will not be able to log on the forum.

    As I can only take my gouges and sharpening stones, I started the project today making the things that need some machinery.

    From a piece of cherry wood that Larry gave me during the last gathering I just glued the pattern and cut it on my bandsaw.

    Then with my reciprocating saw I cut away the inside waste and with the router I routed away one level leaving enough thickness on the back to route a rabbet to allocate the glass and the back lid of the frame. That rebate will have to be done at the end as I need all parts to be supported to preven breakages.

    Then I marked both on the outside and inside the maximum depth the carving will have, so that I know how much I can play with the shapes.

    Very cool!

    How will you hold it while carving? My thought would be to hot glue it to a board but there's probably a better way.

    You are right Ryan, either hot glue or white glue with a paper in between.

    Well Carol, this is something I wanted to try to carve since long ago, so I thought it was a good opportunity to give it a try. We shall see...

    Yeah - the bar is set high - right from the gitgo

    That's OK though - I like a challenge.

    This is gonna be fun
