TIP: Because the MDF board is very thin and fine, its likely that the edges or tips will break while your working on the frame. I advise you to paint the tips with PVA diluted with a little water. This will strengthen up the corners and they wont break off or damage as quickly..! Seriously it will help you.

With the mould laid over, I can chisel away the excess wood back to the line, this makes sanding and forming it easier. This is one of the first tasks I do when starting work on each moulding and detailed piece...

Once this side is done, I will start on the opposite / flip side - it's the closest and means the forms will remain as perfect to each other as possible. One will influence the other...

I try to make the details and forms all flow together, to be as streamline and visual as possible.

So now its time to carve out where the pencil lines are to add depth to the moulds and give them more relief in the design. I try to carve as close to the lines as possible to minimize sanding later on when they are glued on.
