You direct him to a thread with 162 pages. That's no help at all.

Here's the StewMac binding information.

The stew-mac how to is great and informative. But the 162 page thread is a wealth of information that I thought went way beyond the stew-mac how to. After reading the emeraldcaster thread I felt like a binding expert before I had even done my first binding job.

Single binding is actually pretty easy.When you start to laminate different colors it starts getting a bit tougher having to deal with with all the layers.
I found the toughest thing when I started was the binding channel.A router table and a correct binding bit make it soooooooooo much easier.It can be done with great results with a hand held router but it is so much easier on a table

Just have lots of little pieces of tape ready before you start applying glue. This wasn't even enough to do one side.



It's also handy to have a socket and a clamp long enough to reach end to end so you can get the tight bend glued real good.



Marty is right single binding is a breeze. The only part I don't like is cleaning up the mess all that tape and glue leaves behind.

I remember when I decided to tackle binding; I stayed up all night reading this thread. Once I started reading I couldn't stop it was addictive. Bucko’s personality and humor more than make up for the length of the thread.
I know there are other more concise directions on binding, but Bucko wrote the book. Whenever I think of binding, I think Buckocaster51!
