Routed out the binding ledge. Decided to use some flamed maple I have, never bent it before.



Messy bench, I'll get to it later. I have my masking tape ready to hold down the binding, using fish glue, another first. I have a bending iron in the vice to touch up the maple binding. It sprung back as shown in the previous picture.



Seems to be going well.


And it all wrapped up along with starting to shape the neck


I leveled the sides and scraped down the binding.

Looks good. As long as the binding is bent close it will glue on no problem. Cutting the ledge without chewing it up is the tricky part.
