Rope Moulding How To
« on: November 24, 2014, 06:27:32 PM »
How was the rope moulding, like seen on many period banjo clocks or mirrors, made in the period. Its usually about 1/4" in diameter.

Thanks,

Dan

The rope molding was carved by hand. See master carver Chris Pye (UK) carve it on a Sea Chest here:
