    Decided to add 8-32 threaded inserts to this beautiful cedar Conus from @Palmettoflyer Took a deep breath and fired up the drill press. Makes for quick and easy tab attachment.

    Hardest part was holding it level while drilling. A rounded and tapered shape is not conducive to straight holes! Surprised it came out well!

    Great idea! Great to see the frame getting a new look and know that it is working.
