Recently I was asked my mentor and Master Craftsman Patrick Edwards to make some banding samples other wise known as Toppo in French. The image above was one of two large examples showcasing the possible options with simply adding a series of different colored wood, cutting them in different angles, thicknesses, flipping, and shifting.
Its amazing the possibilities there is in this art of banding making. While this all appears difficult, in reality it is not. Often what is necessary is just patience.
