If you’re like me you’ve probably looked in various woodworking magazines over time and have read articles on applying wood inlay. Sometimes the inlay can be rather simple and yet it becomes a nice accent. Other times the inlay can be somewhat complex and it can really grab your attention. I suppose that’s why inlay has been around for thousands of years. For example, the Egyptians, Chinese, Persians, and other cultures used inlay millenniums ago to embellish their works and today the art of inlay is still around.
I suppose it’s easy enough just to purchase bandings for my woodworking projects from a catalog, but why not just make them?
My article is about making bandings of wood inlay by just using scraps around my shop. Bandings are not really difficult to make although they do require a bit of time and patience. The video accompanying this post will show you the process I use to create bandings for wood inlay. If you have any questions or thoughts feel free to let me know. Thanks for watching!
