Natural Wood Bindings

About This Item

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.

Nothing says "custom" like a wood binding...

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I used the curly maple with bwb trim. The trick was gluing the binding so that no sanding was needed on the trim side. I also found I had to be careful steaming the binding to bend it as the color can run from the trim if you steam it too long. But if you test your process first, you should get excellent results. I was very pleased with the trim quality and it made a significant difference in the "fit and finish" of my banjo neck project.

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

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

By

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.
