Banding can be a simple design feature to elevate a project to being unique. Here is a simple band easy to make and add to your project.

http://theapprenticeandthejourneyman.co ... -bandings/

This is a great way to use up the really small cutoffs of unusual or exotic woods or even extra pen blanks. It seems to me though that in many cases really exotic grain gets lost in the design of the banding unless it is used as a field edged with a plain grain wood. Also wood character may get lost in the choice between end grain and face or edge grain when fabricating a banding. I guess that is one reason banding can be a fascinating subset. The click throughs at the bottom are interesting if you will make or take the time
