    Just got the tape off the binding, which I did using Acetone. Pretty happy so far.

    I have a quick question about the sound hole. How do you bind the tight corners on it? I have a similar design for a sound whole and I have concerns about binding the sound holes.

    I see, a thinner binding than standard. Easier to bend in tight corners. I like your thinking ;)

    Nice work!

    I use different sizes of rubber fuel line (hose) to clamp binding in place in small radii like the end of that F hole. I cut a little 1/2" length and force it into place.

    For the rest of the F hole, I use old-school clothespins (the spring type), but backwards: the handles press outward under spring tension, and you place them so the ends of the handles press againse the binding on opposite sides of the F hole. You can pad the ends of the handles with wood shims or hard foam to accommodate any size F hole.
