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.
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 strips. Price is a little steep, but Stew-Mac's service makes up for that. Lams were fine. All in all 5 stars.
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.
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.
Have used several of these bindings and have found them to be of excellent quality and easy to work with.
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.
