How to make banding
Pete Michelinie's shares his techniques for creating a timeless furniture element.
If you’ve never made banding before, this is a great pattern to start with. For one, the design is versatile. It also incorporates skills used in other patterns, such as working with end-grain parts to yield a balanced pattern, effectively gluing up a laminated brick, and safely ripping the brick into thin strips at the tablesaw. This pattern uses kingwood for its central strip, and holly and black-dyed veneers for the thinner outer strips. The white and black highlight the kingwood nicely.
