Whatever way it goes...This is a great place (forum) to "look around and get advice" on such a project.
I will be back in New York State in Altamont area cutting a 6m x 42m frame the first week of June. This frame will be shipped to Menomonie, Wisconsin for a "Farmer's Market," sometime in August-September.
We would all like to hear more about your project here on the forum, if you would like to visit us as we are cutting a large frame...please do get in touch further. I will give you a call soon Gary.
