The flat parts and the bent parts progress at their own rate, with the bent rims requiring the cutting of the fingers and the subsequent bending to final form. Concurrently, the oval or circular flat pieces are generally cut to shape.

The greater amount of work goes into the preparation of and execution of the flat surface treatment. Once the surface is ready for work, scoring occurs, followed by dyes, stains, paint, ink, and other clear or tinted resins.

When the flats are ready to be joined to the bent forms, they are fitted to be friction tight, and secured by small wood pegs from the outside of the band. For the most part, the majority of objects are finished with oil/varnish mixes, hand applied and hand rubbed for final surface.
