Hardly any of the dedicated (Hobby) – painter will have the opportunity to mill timbers themselves, processed wood profiles, but in contrast to simple rectangular wooden slats much more expensive. I have therefore developed a method for my pictures, one frame (in exactly the size that I envision or required) to establish themselves in simple. In the market there is for little money laths (eg 18 x 25 mm), one need only ensure that two sides are so fine that can be turned to the screen, inside there should still be a little uneven, who looks a picture from behind. With a miter saw (45 ), I cut my four slats cope with the required length, put them exact angle down on a tabletop or other rectangular surface, after I have coated the ends with wood glue lay-under Leimkanten a piece of paper so it does not sticking to the substrate and fix the frame with clamps for the required curing time. It shows that the Stable framework so that we can drill with a 6 mm wood drill at a 90 – angle to the adhesive surface in all four corners of a hole for a wooden dowel that is eingeklopft coated with adhesive. Depending on dimensions is placed in the middle of a crossbar for stability. Images on this manual are finden.Nun under is the wedge that prevents the setting up and pushed through the canvas to the wood frame, from a 2-3 mm thick cord, stretched across the diagonal in the frame corners battered, thin nails is formed.
With wood glue it becomes glued to the outer edge of frame, so that after setting forms a groove between the wood and string. If something is working well and will be paid to proper wetting of the two parts, this is a very stable frame, the warp tension and the screen is not reliable, without yielding to intercept. The canvas cover, must be in its application specifically worked carefully on the corners, is fastened with a stapler, the cleanest look is achieved when the screen is pulled up to the Rahmenhinterseite and then stapled. This is especially for images that are suspended without decorative frames, almost inevitable, because the clips on the page look very ugly. I use smaller sizes for linen, which sporadically for supermarket chains in various widths, is fairly cheap and a humidification after tacking is stretched very good and durable. After this canvas rolls are out of print relatively quickly, my method of the frame structure seems useful as an inexpensive alternative. Have fun and a good hand to replicate!
