Girandole and Mirror Frame Moulding

To a reader, I promised (and promptly forgot) to post an image of the cross section of the frame stock used for the recent Pair of George II Walnut Girandoles and Two Small Mirrors. A little tardy, for which I apologise, but here’s a picture of the frame stock now.

The grain of the walnut moulding on top runs east-west, the walnut veneer to the left side runs north-south and you are looking at the end grain of the pine core.

    Thankyou for the cross-section. It is now obvious to me; sometimes I’m just extra dense.
