This material, is in no particular order. There is a lot! Plan to use your computers “search” functionality within this document and Google for further Internet searching.

Look up Buffard Fres on the Internet. At one time a huge manufactory of bandings.

Banding Components of a veneer log. That is log as in a tree log. Individual banding pieces are sawed from the log as needed. There are NO norms in construction of a log. It is YOUR log. Go for it and try Morse code if you want.

1.) Outer Veneers...These components are the top and bottom members of the banding package. When the completed banding is inlaid in place the Outer Veneers are the defining lines on the outside edges of the banding. An Outer Veneer may be a single line of veneer or even multiple lines of veneer. The Outer Veneers whose grain runs along the length of the Package serves to hold the horizontal and vertical components together once glued.

2.) Horizontal Components...The Horizontal Components’ grain usually runs along the length of the Package. The component members are uniformly cross cut from a longer strip of wood. It’s thickness is equal to the height of the Vertical Component and it is also usually wider than the Vertical Component.

3.) The Vertical Components...The Vertical Components each usually have three members that are glued to one another. Each Vertical Component is uniformly cross cut from a longer section that has two outside members and one interior member. The outside members have contrasting wood tones from that of the inside members. The grain direction of the Vertical Component is 90 degrees to the Horizontal Components’ grain direction. The height of this component is equal to the thickness of the Horizontal Component.

In this you tube video Bob specifically creates a saw tooth banding similar to what is used in the knife box.

Very good article on embellishments.

A worthy read.

Be Aware of Scammers
Answering These Ads!

Please be aware that there is a scammer answering these ads. Be careful!!!!

I recommend that you only take CASH or checks from people you know. Very little of the stuff that is advertised is so rare or such a great deal that someone would hire an “agent” to ship it.




If you are selling something online, as a business or through classifieds ads, you may be targeted by an overpayment scam.

The scammer will contact you, make you an offer—often quite generous—then make payment through credit card or cheque. They will be for an amount that is greater than the agreed price.

The scammer will contact you with an apology for the overpayment, offering a fake excuse. The scammer might tell you that the extra money was included to cover agent’s fees or extra shipping costs. Or they may just say they simply made a mistake when writing the cheque.

The scammer will then ask you to refund the excess amount or they will ask for you to forward the amount through to a third party. They will ask for this to through an online banking transfer, pre-loaded money card, or a wire transfer such as Western Union. You then discover that their cheque has bounced or the credit card had been a stolen or fake card.

A newer variation on this scam involves online sales, usually through classified sites, where the scammer pretends to have made a payment for a larger than agreed amount through services such as PayPal by sending a fake receipt of payment. The scammer will claim that the money is being held until you forward on the extra money.

If you send any money, you will not get it back. If you have already sent the ‘sold’ item you will lose this as well. At the very least, the scammer will have wasted your time and prevented you from accepting any legitimate offers on your sale.

I just wanted other Sellers to be careful as I see some valuable machines for sale here.
