Very nice... I am currently in the process of assembling the peacock (just started last night). I am trying to figure out how to frame it. Do you just have it floating?

Yes it's just floating. Literally.
I'm still exploring how to mount it on the backer board without hurting the puzzle itself.

Well it looks pretty nice as is. I have been searching for instructions on framing puzzles but they always include glue, which I want no part of. American frame had a simple guide on framing a puzzle but it didn't include a mat.

That would be one way to do it but, that can possibly ruin the front of the puzzle. I think I'm going to end up gluing the backside to the board. I even emailed Emek to get his suggestions but they pretty much said to glue it from behind.

Generally you want a spacer or matte in between the glass and print when you are framing.

My registration is good around where you mentioned. The only places I see a slight registration issue is in the water directly above the signature and numbers. There are maybe 5 small specks where the wood is visible. I think the registration issues go along with the medium, with wood being as porous as it is. This and my peacock are next on the framing list.

i have to say i'm tickled pink with this one. never owned or really even looked at a print on wood before, and this is just glorious.

bought a dark red 18x24 wood frame yesterday and framed this up w/out the glass in it, and it just owns!!!

my gf likes it too (even with all the skulls) :)
