#112 - Adjustable Standing Frame

Adjustable Standing Frame This frame is wonderful! It is completely articulated so the frame moves or tilts in any direction, independently from the base.

The frame also has holes along all 4 slats and has 4 tiny pegs so you can adjust it to any size you wish, glue in the pegs and mount your completed stitchery.

There are 3 parts to this piece: the frame itself, which pegs into the knuckle joint, which in turn, pegs into the base.

The adjustable standing frame is photographed from the side so you can see the intricate nature of its construction.
