Ornamental Wood Inlay Banding #1

We will refer to the banding in the illustration as “Banding #1” for the convenience of identity.

For this example the dimensions for the inlay package are 4” x 10” x 3/8”. For this instance the length of the sliced banding would work well for a typical picture frame that houses a 5” x 7” picture. When making bandings we need to keep in mind that the longest length our project will require us to make the banding a bit long. By making the banding longer it will allow us leeway for cutting and fitting the banding into place to our liking.

A few items of importance with this study:

1.) Notice the direction of the grain for this pattern. (The line and arrows indicate the grain direction.) There is no end grain that will be exposed in the finished product.
