I have always made my own maple binding but thought I would try something different. SM's wood bindings are easy to apply, easy to trim, take finish well and look good when done.
the Bloodwood binding is just perfect. Color is awesome,I highly recommend it
I bought the curly maple with b/w/b trim for an OM model I am building. I bought several extras knowing I would probably break a few getting the hang of bending. I have only used plastic bindings in my previous builds. Sure enough...broke a couple until I figured out a steaming/bending process that worked great. These bindings are going to make my new Spruce/Mahogany OM pop.
I have used SM's wood bindings and purfling for numerous instruments. Always accurate, solid, and high quality materials for good looks. Like most things I purchase here I have had no problems, only successes.
I use these bindings almost exclusively. I find them to be accurately and evenly cut, which, together with an accurately cut binding ledge, make for perfect bindings.
came in a nice proper package, matches the color i needed, precisely trimmed
These are perfectly black and perfectly dimensioned.
I bought the ebony wbw binding. i bought five strips and one of them broke during bending. Other than that i'm very pleased with them.
I have purchased both the rosewood and curly maple strips, both of which looked great. It was my first wood bending experience, and I only used my mom's curling iron, some damp paper towels, and some aluminum foil. Yet, it still worked perfectly. I used the rosewood to bind the inside corner of my semi hollow build, making a cleaner looking corner. Now just on to the maple for binding the 'f-hole'.
The bindings are top notch and service is great
