    I have a friend that was born in China who is having a big BD.
    So I enlarged a small Chinese papercut. and did this in Baltic birch 1/8.
    it is 8x1o and still needs to be framed.
    I will give it to her for her BD.

          That's beautiful, Rolf.
          And, at that size, perhaps not toooo hard to cut.
          She's sure to like it.

              Nice work

              Lovely scenery Rolf,

              I like it very much, as your friend will I'm sure.

              It's a nice personal (as opposed to personalized) gift

              Regards,
              Marcel

                  Here is my version of the Cinese paper cut Enlarged and framed.
                  I think the matting and framing takes as much time as the cutting.

                    Wow. That frame and matte really finish it off. It's a real beauty. By the way, how do you get the 45 degree corners to meet when making your frames? I've tried making frames and when putting it in the clamps, the last corner is always way off. I end up saying a few words in French and then aggressively tossing it all in the garbage. What kind of saw do you use for the 45's?

                      Thanks for the complement.
                      I have an Incra miter fence for my table saw. I put a stop on it to make sure the the frame pieces are exactly the same. ( opposite sides)
                      I didn't make this frame. It is from ACmoore, I am not happy with it.
                      I prefer to make my own.

                          Rolf,
                          I'm sorry to hear that you don't like the frame. From here, it and the terrific mat really enhance your cutting. I'd say, if you were selling it, easily doubled the price.
                          The only frames I have ever made that were even half-good were some out of weathered corral wood - the joints were just butted - to enhance the primitive look (I told myself)
                          Again, you've done a really nice job. But if you really are unhappy with it, wrap it up quickly, before somebody else orders one. We always only look at our projects' faults. Others will just see the overall cool artwork.
                          Sandy

                            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                            I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                            FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                            Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                            I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
