And while I'm on the mandolin binding, here is my jig for laminating that kind of binding, made of a large white plastic strip laminated with a black and white thin purfling.

The jaws are made from some sort of nylon scraps which does not react with acetone. The top piece of sheet metal acts as a spring that press the parts together.
And here is how it looks like, after a bit of scrapping :
