    I did this from a pattern by Dave Hall. It's 8and1/2x11". Now I have to find or make a frame for it. I cut it from 1/8" BP.Should I put glass on it to keep out dust?
    Thanks for looking. Lance

      Nice job. Id say yes glass, but the expensive non glare glass if possible.

          It is amazing how many versions of that pattern I have seen. All of them maybe only one or two lines different.
          All my portraits are covered with glass. I don't want a careless duster to snag a part.

          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

            I make my own frames and never use glass to cover the portrait. I want the wood to be showcased in the frame and I think the glass detracts from the viewing of the work. Just one opinion of many

              To use glass or not that is the question. I think it is more of a personal preference. I use glass in all of my portraits as I think it gives the work a more finished look. But I have seen works by other individual that they do not use the glass. Try it both ways and see what you like better.

                None of my portraits are covered with glass. I use a ladies fine makeup brush and shop vac to dust. Mike has the right idea, try both. The non glare glass would be my choice if I did want glass. I do frame all my pictures. Very nice cutting of JW.

                    Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

                    The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
