The rest of the write up will follow soon, but suffice it to say– the bandings class we did with Michel Wheeler in early December was great! People had a great time and learned

  a whole lot about this fascinating and seemingly complex collection of techniques. In this next weekend class in what we hope will become a regular series of ornamentation classes we will concentrate on making decorative bandings that incorporate the technique of sand shading. This is a unique technique where parts are singed in hot beach sand to produce a three dimensional appearance. It is great fun and something that can be incorporated into just about any woodworking project.
