Thanks for all the photos. Just one question: In the two photos that follow “Routing for top trim band,” the walnut looks ebonized in the first photo but not in the second. Is that just an illusion? Or did you ebonize after the purpleheart band was inserted? (That almost sounds like a song . . . big panama with a purple hat band! LOL)
