How would you a bow in picture frame
Wondering how you would go about fixing a bow in the front to back direction on a picture frame rail.
I don't have a planer or a jointer (yet), so I bought an S4S walnut board so I could just cut some dimensions and route edges, just to make a real simple frame. As I was cutting it up however, I presume a little stress released in the board and I ended up with a bow in a piece. Curious if I should just quick zip it over a sander in the center? (I'm not real adept with a handplane, but thought about working center out there as well?)
My big concern is if I take off any amount of material to remove that bow, I'll have to adjust the other 3 rails to match and keep the thicknesses consistent, and not sure if i'll be able to mimic it or not.
The picture attached is purely for reference. The image shows a shadowbox style, but I am simply using 3/4" stock that I'll pin to the edge of a canvas wrapped frame.
Thanks for the ideas or confirmations!
