I am wondering if you found the solutions to your problem regarding “how to make guitar bindings”???

FYI there is now plenty of info available online via google… search for: how to make guitar binding strips and you’ll get plenty of options to look at.

ONE site that outlines the process in wood is:

It is a time consuming process and there are plenty of pre-made purfling & binding strips available from most luthier suppliers which I’m sure everybody knows!

I find I still have to resize and gauge to custom size using shop bought strips. The trickiest are those very thin strips used to build up a series of fine lines. I haven’t been able to figure that out so far except to use pre-cut veneer sheets cut into thin strips then glued up on edge.
Anyhoo, I hope this helps everyone who trips over the post which incidentally came up in my Google search!!! .
