Framing Project - For Sale - Weaver Gallery Steve Steigman Maxell Blown Away Porsche Poster (France, Original)
I had already cut the black foam core to size (24x36) and the plexiglass using an 80 tooth blade on my hand circular saw. It turns out the poster is technically 35 15/16” wide. I will see how this plexiglass looks and may upgrade in future to a UV coated plexiglass or may do real UV coated glass, but nothing stopping me from doing that in future.
Next was to put a fresh blade in the mat board cutter. I had originally intended to do a cutout for the text in bottom left where it states printed in France, so ended up just having to go straight across the bottom to correct it. This was really what I was going to do with the original vision, but I cut the bevel on one cut in the wrong direction, so had to change course a little. Still looks awesome. I am keeping the template and may go after the more complex mat board cut in the future as well. I had bought 2 sheets of the mat board in a Crescent #9631 Coal Mine, but had already messed one up when I accidentally cut it to 24x30 incorrectly, oh well..will use that on another project I am working on (to be posted in a few weeks).
Next was to confirm the fitment and to my delight (and surprise), came out astoundingly well.
I am in the process of final assembly and will update this post when I complete it.
Ok, decided to redo the mat and got UV coated glass at Jerry’s. Final product. I know where the minor flaws are, but I can accept this.
