Julie, I'm at home but I'm sure if you ask for the football dome acrylic they will know what you are talking about. They also have them for golf balls/baseball,tennis/soccerOriginally posted by Julie-Tulie:
I couldn't find it in the United catalog...what is the number on that...PLEASE?
The moulding is Framerica and if you look closely at the frame on the right hand side you can see the spacer. I used what we call here in USA screen moulding. It is aval at any lumber yard at about .22 per foot. 3/4" wide x 1/4" thick, and I stained to match with a stain marker.Originally posted by RoboFramer:
How is the shirt spaced from the glass?
Angie, the acrylic sheet has a hole cut out of it and the the football dome slips in the cut out with the ball deflated and in place. So yes the football sticks out about 1/2 of its depth.Originally posted by Angie Pearson, CPF:
My depth perception is all messed up... I'm sure it is but have to ask anyway... is the football sticking out of the glass? I have not seen these yet.
I think there is no possiblity of the dome coming loose even though it is a pressure fit, because the pressure that the football places between the dome and the backing keeps it in place.Originally posted by Twin2:
is there any possibility that it will 'let go' some day?
Would the 'screen moulding' be the same as 'lattice', here in Canada? It seems to be the same dimensions as you stated, and is often used as a decorative feature in privacy fences. However, the lattice that I often come across is quite rough in texture and yours looks very smooth (or did you just sand it really well?)
Oops, I hadn't realized that you had cut a hole in the acrylic and the football dome slips in the cut out area. I guess my depth perception isn't that great either. It looked like the dome was just mounted on top of the piece of acrylic.Originally posted by j Paul:
