I started doing the back binding last night and got the rest of it on today. I used the bike inner tube to strap it down, and titebond to glue the bindings. After removing the inner tube I started scraping the binding flush to the back and sides.
I like the look of thin binding.
After it was looking like the back binding was going to turn out looking really good, I did the same thing to the top.
Here's my gluing method.
Here you can see the left side has been scraped and the right side hasn't been yet.
I think it looks pretty good.
