Details

Beautiful hardwood bindings are a natural accent preferred by many contemporary luthiers.

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.

I make most of my Bindings myself, but sometimes I use Stewmac Natural wood Binding. And I love the quality!!

Make my job easy

I love these binding/laminated strips, a short visit to the side bender and they are ready to glue, no more broken purfling strips bent in various strange shapes.

Excelleeeeeeent

Just what i needed, right size and makes for great fretboard binding.

Perfect strips of wood

I ordered the plain bloodwood bindings. These strips are perfectly cut, with beautiful coloring.

The right wood binding makes all the difference

By Leroy Beal from Mountain View, CA
(Customer's Reviews) Monday, December 20, 2010


I've used both binding types and have had good results, for the most part. They are consistent and made from quality materials. The only problem I had was with the curly koa binding. Because of the nature of the wood, it can break at the more extreme curls. Buy a couple extra strips to accommodate this. Worth it if combined with the proper contrasting body woods.

Room for improvement . . .

By Jeff Fortenbery from Cincinnati, OH
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, November 27, 2010


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.

Natural Wood Bindings Ebony

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

nice 

By James Harper from Brea, CA

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

By Fred Hocker from Stockholm, Sweden
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, October 20, 2010


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

By John Mayes from Norman,OK

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.
