Staking Up

The process of adding uprights in classic round and oval work includes 4 different stages: cutting the stakes, inserting the stakes, kinking the stakes, and, finally, tying them together.  Each of these stages might be done in a number of different ways according to the nature of our work and your personal preferences.  Here I demonstrate some commonly used methods and approaches for each of these stages, and, while doing so - explain their advantages and the reasoning behind them.
