I needed some baseboards for the bathroom vanity, so I gently
bounced this 40" x 62" picture frame on opposite corners until it
broke gradually and gently. I was hearing this weird ripping sound
just figuring it was some old wood.
Nope! Somebody sewed the picture frame together on all 4 corners
with brass wire, I thought somebody put a couple modern finishing
nails in it to make it true/sturdy again, but on closer
inspection, the nails look handmade as well. And on even closer
closer inspection, whatever pictures was in here was sewn in with
a wire thread at least 1/10th the gauge of the sewn frame itself.
And at an average of about 13 TPI over almost 200 linear inches
(inside diameter). Frame is 1.5" x 3/4" thick solid wood.
I cannot find any real references to sewing wood, so I'm really
curious as to what, who, where, when, why?
