LOML found this tapestry and it needed a frame. I attempted to design the frame to be as angular as possible because of all the angles in the tapestry. I am questioning my design now that it is complete. What do you think, does it work or is it overdone or lacking something?
The wood is qswo with floating tenon construction. The stain is an oil based that was used for the rest of the house. I let it dry 2 days, then applied a dilute coat of Target’s EM6000, then 2 undiluted coats with light 400G sanding between each.
I also filled the grain with Timbermate. I have been threatening to fill the grain on a project for a long time and either get lazy or chicken out at the last moment. Anyhow, the Timbermate does work and gave a very smooth surface, but IMO it made the finish look a little muddy, probably I did something wrong. Next time I think I will try Famowood for the filler.
Thanks for any comments.
