I got a chance to frame my finished carving. Here’s how I did it.
My carving was made in Alaskan Yellow Cedar.
I decided to mat the carving with AYC as well.
I plowed a groove in the matte material to hold the carving.
Cutting the miters.
Then trimmed the miters with my shooting board. Pretty end grain!
In the clamps with the matte.
I love using hand tools to do this work.
Then I plowed a bead in the external frame with my new beading capability that my new Veritas plow plane.
Mehagany under shellac.
