I've always just put single-layer binding on my guitars, but I ordered some half-thickness binding in 2 colors today, I want to do white/black on my next build. I'm pretty sure I can do this but I'm thinking it could get messy. Also I don't want any gaps or separation between layers... Anybody got some good tricks for this, or is it just a matter of going slow and careful and staying patient?

My new two toys. Top radius is 20". Fits most guitars (Triple O, L-00, Dread etc.)
One is for my classical necks, the other for steel strings.
I have an other with a 12" radius for my Small Jumbo's.
Some (adhesieve) sand paper on the top of the block, a few stocks and you have a perfect neck fit.
These instruments usually had 6 courses, but there were some with either 5 or 7 courses. I prefer 4 or 5 course instruments, so I'm going to build a 5 course one. They were tuned to lute tuning.
I may go with single strings instead of the doubled courses these would usually have, and if I do, I may also use machine heads instead of wooden pegs (as much as this would totally ruin any historical accuracy! - hey it's for me to play, not for a museum...) This would also make it more versatile for me to experiment with different tunings.
