Clara – Cutting out the binding channels

The time has come for some more delicate work – cutting the binding channels.  By hand.  Who had that bright idea?  Oh yes, me.

First of all, I had to remember where I had put my gramil (basically a tool with a sharp blade and a series of bots of steel and aluminium to cut a line at a fixed distance from an edge).  Once I remembered where it was, I started marking the extents of the channel on the top.

Then start taking material away for the binding to sit on its own ledge.  In this photo you can see the gramil.  Exciting, huh?

And what you end up with is a shelf of a reasonably even width to hold the black and white stripe material.
