Gluing the banding

Using a hardwood darker than the leg, cut a rectangular piece of banding for every dado. Saw the banding so the grain will be parallel with the grain of the leg when the pieces are glued in place; they should be the same width as the dadoes, but about % inch longer and 3/ie inch thick. Spread glue on two pieces of banding, set them in dadoes on opposite sides of the leg and secure them in place with a C clamp (right). Once the adhesive has cured, remove the clamp and trim the ends of the banding flush with the leg by running the adjoining dadoes across the router table again as in step 2. Glue banding into these dadoes, then sand the banding flush with the leg surface.

Instead of being cut to fit into a dado in a leg, the commercial inlay veneers shown at left are glued to the sides of a tapered leg blank.
