In Japan last year we didn't actually finish any of our Takadai braids . Because of this I have no first hand experience. I have a couple of books that cover a couple of basic finishes however they assume that you have some knowledge already.
When I finished my first braid earlier in the week I ran the ends through the machine and ran a line of Fray Stop to secure it. I planned a trip to the library.
Imagine my delight when I rediscovered this book. I bought it many years ago, long before I started braiding, in a second hand store up the coast. It has lots of finishes with really clear instructions. I'm set, for a little while anyway.
