Made the frame & everything. I just thought I would share a little ...

Nice. Cool frame and mounting job for the carving but I have to say that the screws take away from it. Try to come up with a way of securing it to the backing without them being visible. Screw it from the back or side, use glue, etc.

Haha, thanks Matt. I kind of like the screws although I do agree it takes away from the primitive feel of the piece. I'm kind of a caveman impost instances so for me it was an easy way to make them stick to the rest of the piece. I'll try and figure out a more subtle technique to do that in the future though.

Thanks for looking everyone.
