DAILY PAINTING: I've finished the set of four new stretcher frames. You can see that I've put down a lot of newspaper, but the glue manages to find unprotected places--on the work surface, on the floor, on me! Try not to use alot of glue. Building stretcher frames is like a timed wrestling match: the joints will move for a limited time, but once they become rigid, you're out of luck. Be sure to have a rubber mallet handy for a little persuasion. After all, a stretcher frame that's not square is no good to anyone.
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
