After getting my rough shape from carving, I'll use a rasp and then a finer file till it's close to smooth and then I'll sand it.

You can sand with a higher grit paper, depending on how pretty you want it but I seldom sand higher than 220. A tip I got from Metrograde a few years ago was to sand to 220 grit then apply a thin coat of BLO and sand it into the frame and continue with the 220, the slurry of saw dust and BLO gives the effect of sanding with a higher grit but saves tons of time.

The frame you posted may not be as pretty as you'd like but will still shoot as good as any!! (y)
