We continue with our study of the decorative wood inlay bandings of the Buffard Freres of Paris. These wood inlay banding designs are from the company’s 1926 catalog.

We first take a look at bandings 1134-1137

This group of bandings have similarities in their design and construction. Each banding design has three components.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The components:

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 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 wider than the Vertical Component in this illustration.

3.) The Vertical Components…The Vertical Components each 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.

While bandings 1134-1137 are similar in design and in construction, we can easily see that the color combinations vary from one to the other along with the sizes of the components. This is the beauty of wood inlay bandings in that we can take one style of banding and make minor tweaks to arrive at a custom inlay banding that offers a unique appearance.

Banding 1138…My belief is that that banding has two basic components.

1.) Outer Veneers…The Outer Veneers are the top and bottom members and has its wood grain running along the length of the banding Package.

2.) Vertical Components…These components are made from a length of two laminated strips of contrasting woods. Each individual strip is of a differing thickness. The Vertical Components are uniformly cross cut and placed vertically on the bottom Outer Veneer during gluing.

Banding 1139…It looks like this banding is made of three components. (Outer Veneers and two types of Vertical Components.)

1.) Outer Veneers…The Outer Veneers include the top and bottom members who grain runs along the length of the banding Package.

2.) Vertical Components…

a.) A dark square member with a yellow strip on each side. These laminated members were uniformly cross cut from a longer length.

b.) Alternating colors of black, red, black. These member were also uniformly cross cut from a length of laminating members.
