I started making banding several years ago. Every once in a while I get an idea or a bunch of scraps and start gluing wood together. The one that looks like a railroad tracks is made from cutoffs from making tenons! The “S” one was a design I saw at a museum and tried to figure out how did they do that? These are mostly fun and a nice break from regular construction.

These would make a great addition to any project…. the hand made look is what appeals to me…

I use banding quite a bit, but don’t have the patience (or maybe the skill either) to make my own. My hat is off to you!

Your “S” banding is also known as lunette banding … A traditional federal banding used by old masters such as the Seymour’s. It is a difficult one to make until after you’ve figured out how it is done… Did you try sand tinting your plugs? That will give it the shaded “moon” feel.. Very nice.

I had never heard of banding before, you learn something every day on LumberJocks. Cool patterns.

Didn’t know the history of the lunette pattern, thanks! I want to try it doing it again with the shading. That sounds really cool. This one is 3/4 inch wide, which is too big for a lot of applications. The next one will be smaller.
