ANTIQUE FURNITURE RESTORATION DISCUSSION BOARD

Cross banding

I'm restoring a mahogany rocker which has a curved laminated seat. The seat is cracked all the way through right at the most dramatic part of the curve.

I braced the underside of the seat and reglued the substrates. My thought is to add a layer of thick (like 1/28) cross banding, then another layer of mahogany veneer (in opposite grain directions) to hide and smooth out the crack.

1. Does this sound like a sound approach to repair? 2. I once bought cross banding (poplar I think) from one of the internet suppliers (Van Dyke's, Constantine's, Rockler) but I forget which and can't find it in any of their catalogues.

Any thoughts?
