Each unbent strip is approximately .080" thick, .250" tall and 33-1/2" long (2.03mm x 6.35mm x 850.90mm). The optional triple lamination is .010"/.020"/.010" white and black fiber.

Note: Cocobolo is a naturally oily wood. For best results, clean with acetone and glue with epoxy or super glue.

Excellent bindings

They're very even and well cut strips of maple, can't really say anything bad about them. I haven't tried bending them so I'm not sure about the bendability of them, but it should be fine

Natural Wood Bindings

I received very good quality, ready to use. Only with the Cocobolo with b/w/b I had problem with one strip. It seems that the grain was going the wrong direction, otherwise I can not explain why it broke several times during bending while the others did not. I will use that bindings from StewMac further.

Mismatched colour and grain

Like always, Stewmac has sent quality items, including these rosewood bindings. The only problem is that they do not match. They differ not only in color but also the direction of the grain. I cannot use them on the same instrument.

White not

Nice thin strips of wood. The white lam on the ebony is a dirty grey color that had to be dyed out, defeating the reason for buying it laminated.

bloodwood binding

For the first time I choose the bloodwood binding and I can say the result is far beyond my expectation.
It's a little tricky to bend but the final visual impact is very impressive.
Five star, no doubt

mon premier essai avec du binding en bois massif, j'avais peur pour le cintrage mais absolument aucun problème.
La seule chose que l'on pourrais signaler est la légère différence de teinte entre les pièces quand on en commande plusieurs.Ce qui est normal c'est du vrais bois et non du matériel synthétique!

Highly Recommended

The Natural wood bindings are the great. The curly with b/w/b is very nice. It is different (and much better quality) than the curly without the b/w/b purfling. It is a perfect width, very easy to bend, and a real joy to work with.
