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.

The nicest binding for your masterpiece

I can only bend these using my heating pad, a bending machine and steam, but they are by far the most gorgeous binding strips i have ever come across.

Every strip I have received is perfect

By

I use the ebony strips to bind my fretboards. Every strip has perfect edges and is straight. They are a bit pricey but worth it. I have made my own wood bindings and it is time consuming so I don't mind the price to get what I need and save a great deal of time.

I asked if the bindings could be matched for an acoustic guitar I am working on. They were a great match, same size and pattern, couldn't ask for better. As always the folks at StewMac do their best to accommodate special requests.

Looks good. Couldn't get it to bend.

By

Verified Buyer


The binding shipped quickly, and looked good. Unfortunately, I was unable to bend it to fit the Les Paul style body I'm building. I tried several combinations of water, steam, ammonia and heat, but the binding would always either delaminate or crack. I ordered a second set, and then some plain rosewood, but had the same results. I've given up on the wood, and am waiting for some plastic to arrive. It probably comes down to technique, so your mileage will likely vary.

Beautiful bindings, but difficult to attach. I soaked the maple one overnight and thought I could get away with attaching it to a ukulele without using heat. Big mistake! It broke in 5 or 6 places. My ignorance. I'm sure a more experienced craftsman would've installed the binding correctly.
