Testimonials

Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!

I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project.  The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.

I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.

I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.

I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.

Great job
and thanks!
Dustin

BindingPurflingdetailbyRobertDesmond450These multi-line purflings are produced from black and white (B/W) veneers laminated together. The veneers may be wood, fiber or a combination of the two. The black fiber and black wood (pear) look very similar. The white fiber is very white versus the white wood (maple) which is a honey maple color. See the "Purfling Spec Chart", below, for the laminate content of each purfling.

Fiber veneer is very flexible and no bending is needed prior to installation. Wood veneer may need to be bent to avoid breakage depending on the shape of the instrument you are building and the number of laminates in the layup. One can sometimes us a simple household iron to bend these to the appropriate shape. These laminates should not be soaked.

NOTE: The laminates here are offered in two lengths, 32" or 64" unless otherwise noted. 64" is essentially a wrap-around length. 32" pieces require a butt-joint. The 32" pieces are also great for rosette rings. The shorter purflings require that a ledge be routed as the purfling and binding will be different heights. The taller purflings allow you to rout a single ledge the same width (a skosh narrower) as the binding + purfling as they are essentially the same height.

IMPORTANT: Because dimensions may vary due to the lay-up process. We recommend that you always wait for your material to arrive before routing your purfling or binding channel.

For details on sizes, and layup materials of each of our purflings (inches and mm), see the PURFLING SPEC CHART
