There doesn't seem to be much of anything written that deals specifically with the carving of picture frames. Some of you may have seen the two frames I posted earlier and now this one is the classic Waterleaf design. I'm looking for advice on how to transfer designs so they are the same on all corners, especially when there's a cove involved too. I've made templates from the plastic used for salad containers which work great for getting the outer shape but it's the inside details that give me difficulties. Carbon paper and paper tend to slip around inside the cove and are difficult to register. I've attached a picture of the design I'm currently working on. I'd thought of separating all the elements and drawing them on that way. If my drawing skills were better this probably wouldn't be that much of an issue. In any case, appreciate any advice someone out there in "Grumble Land" can offer up. By the way, are there very many other carvers/gilders out there?
