Room for improvement . . .

The dimensions are very accurate and consistent. That's the good news.

Bad news is if you're planning on mitering the purflings - good luck finding 10/20/10 w/b/w material anywhere. I make my own, but it's a pain to do so. I wish they'd either change trim to 10/10/10 OR offer 10/20/10 purfling (without bindings) as a complimentary product.

I adore these black strips! There is no equal! Simply order them and StewMac delivers them to you, now I know it.

I purchased 80 pieces of Cocobolo binding (without trim). Nearly all of them had beautiful grain and color. There were only a few pieces that I might have returned because of quality or color but not enough to make it worth shipping them back. The ones I received mostly looked very much like the ones in the picture.

Not perfect but consistently good

Bindings I received were consistent in color and grain, well matched. As with any wood binding, there is some short grain in places, but the overall quality is higher than I have gotten from several other suppliers.

Nice binding

Nice binding strips. Price is a little steep, but Stew-Mac's service makes up for that. Lams were fine. All in all 5 stars.

Natural Wood Bindings

This bindings are indeed, excellent.
I inspected them to detect if they have
diagonal grains, but when they have, I just use a metal backing when bending them and they look nice.

Very good but

These are very good bindings!, I glued many of them, but beware that sometimes a few of them arrive with diagonal grain direction! and broke a lot and hard to bent

I have used your Natural Wood Bindings for the first time on the last instrument I made , I found them very easy to work with ,and made an appreciable difference. Also, I was impressed with the short time to process and deliver my order.

So So

I suggest doing your own laminations. By the time I leveled off the bottom of these it left very little of the last lamination left.
