      That's a lovely piece of work . I thought it looked familiar so I checked the latest edition of SSW (page 22) and there's the very same piece, nicely framed! I think the frame does set the picture off.

      Nick Berchtold's designs are very attractive. He's very talented, especially when you consider how young he is.

        Maybe it is my German heritage, but I like defined edges. I think a nice frame would finish this beautiful piece of work nicely. Or mounted on a framed background would also look very nice.

          Personally, I like it without the frame. Seems "cleaner" to me. Lets the beauty of the piece speak for itself.

            I also agree that it looks great without a frame, this is a beautiful piece and to me the frame may take away from it somewhat. Just my 2 cents worth.

              I also agree that a frame might distract somewhat from the beauty of that piece . I prefer frames on portraits and similar items but I think that particular piece being intarsia rather than a portrait would be best left as is.
              Great work on that one.

                  Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                  That is...

                  The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                  Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                  Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                  Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                  Now,...
