I’ve recently written an article about how we make our beveled stretcher mouldinglink for our canvas printswhy. The first illustration in the “Dado Cut” section of that article shows important measurements for both a 30° and 45° bevel. Since then I’ve needed to use both of those on the same frame (see what we have in stock for Fort Myers Beach Fishing Pier) and needed to use a miter joint to connect these at a right angle.
Find the best way to join these two types of moulding in a right-angled corner of a frame suitable for stretching canvas. For stretching canvas, the print will be on top, but the canvas will stretch around the sides and will be stapled to the flat part of the bottom edge. The only part that needs to match is the outer face (the ones with the numbers in the above photo), from the peak down until the first one of them turns back underneath. But there can be no points jutting out to tear the canvas.
The winner of this contest will get a photographic print matted to 16″ by 20″. This can either be one of Nancy’s images or your own. You can check out the possibilities at www.BeeHappyGraphics.com. Here’s how the contest will work:
- For at least the next three weeks, or until I publish my own answer to this question (which I don’t guarantee to be optimal), you can submit your idea by Email to info@BeeHappyGraphics.com. Include whatever pictures (however crude) or other information you need to explain your idea. I may include your idea in the comment section below, possibly even before the end of the contest (to encourage creativity and competition).
- The best viable solution will win the prize. Although I may solicit the opinion of other woodworking associates, I will be the final judge. In the comment section below, I will announce the end of the contest and identify the winner. The decision of the judges (as defined above) is final. This prize may be combined with other promotions.
Well, that’s it. Although I hadn’t thought of this beveled moulding idea at the time, Figure 14 of Using Multiple Moulding Widths In One Frame might provide insight. Good luck.
