I've been caught up in the world of canvas assembly lately. Here are my 2x2"s with quarter round molding glued & tack nailed to the surface.
These canvases are 22x22" and larger. I love making my own stretcher bars - it saves money and I've found that they don't warp nearly as bad as commercially made canvas bars. Once I cut them down to size I glue them together using a ratchet strap to hold it snugly together.
After they dry for at least a day, I'll drill holes and secure the corners with 2 1/2 inch wood screws. Tomorrow, I'll start stretching and priming!
In other non-power-tool-related news, I've been watching this spider outside of my porch window for days:
It is a female Garden Spider, and she is massive! Her abdomen measures close to an inch long and with her arms she could almost span my palm.
Before photographing the spider I had to check to make sure it didn't have miraculous jumping powers so I poked it with a stick. It didn't jump but it grabbed on to the stick and pulled back! Creepy!
