Knotwork Banding Workshop – Day 3

The final day of the workshop was essentially the continuation of the previous exercises, with the opportunity to begin refining the new panels fabricated on Day 1.  The aggressiveness for the latter was tempered by the green-ness of the adhesive layer which needed a few more day to be fully hardened.

On the primary exercise the task was to complete the long straight sections of the banding, followed by the gluing down of the cross-grain borders.  If we could get that done first thing the glue would set enough for us to gently flatten the entire panel after lunch.

And that is what was accomplished.  Toothing planes and rasps were brought out and put to work.  The glue held firm and success was at hand.

The final finishing of the panels would be accomplished at home in the coming days.
