Details

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

Each unbent strip is approximately 0.080" thick, 0.250" 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.

For matching top purfling, choose our Violin Purfling Set.

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

Nice figure

The maple ones I received were both the same colour and consistency of figure.

Nice Look

These binding strips are a great choice for a guitar project that you want to take a step up from plastic binding. The overall quality of these strips is high. I did have a strip or two that just wouldn't take a bend. But I won't let that stop me from ordering these again, it is wood after all, and we all know wood isn't perfect AND has a mind of it's own. Watch ou when you but two strips together that the black white black laminate matches up. Not all are the same! Overall great binding and clean

nicely machined bloodwood bindings, even color and pretty straight (unlike some I have purchased from other suppliers!)

I used this binding on a bass guitar neck. The binding is very attractive with a rich color and I haven't oiled it yet. It glued well using CA.

Very nice!

These are high quality and very nice. They are really a quick way to get a real custom look without any extra effort over regular plain wood bindings.

Adds class to project!

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.

Curly Maple Binding

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.

Natural wood bindings

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.

Perfect bindings

By
(Customer's Reviews)


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.
