My first woodworking project. I've completed a large puzzle, dimensions ~ 62" x 42", and I'm interested in creating a "frameless" frame to mount it on the wall. The entire process can be seen here. The video uses pine DAR but I can't seem to find any locally. I've seen that furring strip is cheap and comes cut in dimensions I can easily work with.
1. Is furring strip "structurally" sturdy enough for me to use in this application?
2. Is there a specific name for the "x brace" pattern being used here?
So in my style search I stumbled upon Seth Rolland and was instantly drawn by some of the work that he created. I don't think I'm going to go quite as far as he did but something along these lines.
I'm not even sure if the piece will fit but it's going to be the one oddball piece in the room so i figure why not try something new. If i don't like it i can always put it somewhere else or maybe try and sell it.
High Performance is good. I've also had awesome luck with Varathane brand WB poly. Minwax WB polys I've had poorer results with.
Dry time is a benefit i can have 3 light coats done in an hour. I sprayed 2 coats on some cornhole boards and was playing on them 45 min after i turned the sprayer on....
For stuff you want some slight warming effect Endurovar is by far the best but again it has a warming effect / leaves a yellow cast.
