The whole thing is glued together with white tacky PVA, not too carefully applied but filling all gaps. The upper cutout pieces have been treated with CA glue for strength and to prevent delaminating during construction.

Anyway, a couple of days for the glue to dry then I will sand it into submission.
OK, I get the idea this allows for sanding to the lines for truing up the frame much like as if made from wood. Where did you get this material? Great looking frame.:DRick

Thanks Rick. I just wish the hull timbers were going together as well. You should be able to get illustration board anywhere that sells art supplies.
