How To Make Inlay Bandings
This is the way I was taught how to make custom cross grain inlay bandings. I used a piece of wedge for the core of the banding, followed by holly and ebony veneer. This is a great way to add a decorative inlay to any project that you may be building. I started with a wedge turning blank 3x10x10 inches and cut it cross grain. Then I cut those piece in half and glue then end to end. To do this successfully you’ll need to clamp them down to a flat board then apply clamping pressure. After that I flattened and removed any glue. I then glues 4 piece of white and black veneer to the end grain glue up. When all said and done the end grain glue up won’t be an issue cause the landings will be less than an inch thick. You can add whatever type of wood color you want to come up with al types of designs. Hope you enjoyed and possible learned a new technique!

A lot of work and preparation, but the end product is spectacular!
I check a lot of woodworking handbooks. These one from woodprix are the best.
would love to see the end product this was made for
Nice work, Kyle. Where did you get the super-thin light-colored material?
I made it, learned on woodprix website. great solutions I think.
That is so cool, it’s given me so many cool ideas!
that’s on point.
Awesome. Thank you sharing!
Looks great Kyle!
Nicely done! Looks great
i down on my knees
dont be so hot baby
Awesome work Kyle, did you use a router to cut the track?
That was great. This reminds me of a video with SIS woodworking, that guy basically has a PhD in doing this type work. Interestingly he uses a jig called an "accu-slice" on the bandsaw to cut the very thin strips[see 3:19 in the video]. It seems to work amazingly for this, and would definitely save wood because the kerf is much thinner. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/TejTCGVyEOs
Love the zero clearance table saw insert!
Im using woodprix instructions to make it and I do it already 🙂
This inlay is just what I’m looking for, is it available or could you make some up?
Enjoy woodprix woodworking instructions.
Very good job 👏🏻
Is it the dark wood end grain on the finished inlay
I made it too few weeks ago. Want to know how ? just look for Woodglut.
Amazing technique what was the polish finish you used..
Loving it kyle, it looks sick! Thumbs up!
That looks super Sexy Kyle! Nice job!
AWESOME Kyle….thanks for sharing.
Does anyone know what the black and white paper/vinyl material he uses is? i would really like to use it some time.
You can learn more about it on woodprix website I think.
Hi, great Vid… but did you mean Wenge instead of Wedge. Thanks Howard,
just a warning from installing inlay in frames, make sure it’s not too thin…speaking from experience 🙂 i haven’t tried making my own banding but this looks like its not too difficult, thanks so much for sharing your video.
I did something like this a month ago with plans from Woodprix.
wow so cool, thansk for the tip Kyle! thats beautiful
Nicely done. They look very classy
You pulled some sort of Abra Kadabra on this one, I’m not entirely sure how you did some of those steps.. it looks incredible
Great stuff Kyle!
I made it myself. Just take a fast look for woodprix website if you’d like to make it too.
Super cool technique. Thanks for sharing!
very nice job
Check woodprix handbook if you want to make it cheaper and better.
That was first class Kyle! Thanks for showing us the way.
I’m so sure that you can make it too guys. Just look for woodprix.
That’s really good, not to hard to do if you have the tools but, I’m certainly going to try and have a go. Cheers 👍🏼😊
It always breaks my heart a little when I think about how much of such nice material is wasted by the saw blade eating it up; if someone ever invents something that works with little to no saw dust loss produced they will get rich…
Very cool man! 🙂
I will make it myself this week I think. Just got instructions from woodprix website and I’m ready for do it 😀
A simple and elegant technique. Thanks. The banding looks beautiful
That design is really sick
