How To Make Inlay Bandings

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!



  2. Shantel Bollmann on February 24, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    I check a lot of woodworking handbooks. These one from woodprix are the best.



  3. geekdiggy on February 24, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    would love to see the end product this was made for



  4. SonicBoomer on February 24, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Nice work, Kyle. Where did you get the super-thin light-colored material?



  5. Callihan Hopwood on February 24, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    I made it, learned on woodprix website. great solutions I think.

    Awesome work Kyle, did you use a router to cut the track?



  13. Douglas B on February 24, 2022 at 11:05 pm

    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!



  15. Artem Lebedev on February 24, 2022 at 11:09 pm

  16. LAWAUTO on February 24, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    Kyle,
    This inlay is just what I’m looking for, is it available or could you make some up?

    Is it the dark wood end grain on the finished inlay



  21. Romaine Athey on February 24, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    I made it too few weeks ago. Want to know how ? just look for Woodglut.



  22. 1963johnbhoy on February 24, 2022 at 11:14 pm

  26. Jonathon on February 24, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    Does anyone know what the black and white paper/vinyl material he uses is? i would really like to use it some time.



  27. Romelia Polly on February 24, 2022 at 11:18 pm

    You can learn more about it on woodprix website I think.



  28. Howard Vaughan on February 24, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Hi, great Vid… but did you mean Wenge instead of Wedge. Thanks Howard,



  29. Marney Smithies on February 24, 2022 at 11:20 pm

    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.



  30. Sherryl Keith on February 24, 2022 at 11:21 pm

    I did something like this a month ago with plans from Woodprix.



  31. Shane Carrigan on February 24, 2022 at 11:21 pm

  32. Ryan Belnap on February 24, 2022 at 11:22 pm

    Nicely done. They look very classy



  33. GeekBuilders on February 24, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    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



  34. Don Finch on February 24, 2022 at 11:28 pm

    Very noice



  35. African Cichlids on February 24, 2022 at 11:29 pm

  37. Matthew Lavergne on February 24, 2022 at 11:30 pm

    I made it myself. Just take a fast look for woodprix website if you’d like to make it too.



  38. Seth Galitzer on February 24, 2022 at 11:33 pm

    Super cool technique. Thanks for sharing!



  39. Dave on February 24, 2022 at 11:33 pm

  41. Shannan Schisler on February 24, 2022 at 11:35 pm

    Check woodprix handbook if you want to make it cheaper and better.



  42. Luke Iaboni on February 24, 2022 at 11:37 pm

    beautiful!



  43. Pask Makes on February 24, 2022 at 11:39 pm

    That was first class Kyle! Thanks for showing us the way.



  44. Egor Mrinskiy on February 24, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    I’m so sure that you can make it too guys. Just look for woodprix.



  45. Marcfx on February 24, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    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 👍🏼😊



  46. Dennis Lubert on February 24, 2022 at 11:44 pm

    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…



  47. Kevin Stein on February 24, 2022 at 11:46 pm

    Very cool man! 🙂



  48. Doyle Metzinger on February 24, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    I will make it myself this week I think. Just got instructions from woodprix website and I’m ready for do it 😀



  49. chandraasutube on February 24, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    A simple and elegant technique. Thanks. The banding looks beautiful



  50. プラクシーエルゴ on February 24, 2022 at 11:50 pm
