I have a project i want to do inlay banding on, my front apron/top are over 36" long, I've read the term of splicing them using a scarf joint.

What angle is sufficient enough to hide these?

Is it wood?
If so it's almost always a different grain, density, color.
Consider breaking it up into symmetrical pieces to add character, detail.

The choice might depend on the pattern used. Some look seamless when scarfed, while others with perpendicular pattern look good with just a good butt joint.
