Canvas Stretching Underway

With the stretcher bars complete, it’s time to put them to use! I’m stretching canvas over them, but you won’t see any staples here, only nails. That’s right, I’m going old-school, complete with rabbit glue. As an 18-year vegetarian, I was conflicted about using it; however, after trying the synthetic stuff, there was no other way. Sorry rabbits.
