I glued up one corner with biscuits and clamp blocks and a second with no biscuits and painters tape….

Painter tape option was much easier and actually came out nicer. So I did the remaining two with tape.

Glued up the first frame tonight…

This is coming along so nicely. It looks like it’s gong to be an outstanding piece with a lot of fine craftsmanship.

Hey Matt,

Really looking good… your attention to detail!

Also – I’m a believer in the tape method for the mitered corners…..
