Another approach for binding the sound hole is to treat it as another ring of inlay. I bend a ring and then rout an appropriately sized channel into the top and inlay the ring. The depth of the channel is a few thousandths shy of going through the top. Later, I rout out the sound hole opening inside the binding ring. In the photo below, the innermost ring is cocobolo sound hole binding.

What a simple elegant solution. I already route out the sound hole just to the desired thickness of the top while I have the tools out to make the rosette. The ring drops out as I thickness the top. I have to whack myself in the head to think I missed the step of filling the routed channel.

I got that idea from Rick Davis, so the credit for it goes to him. It does work like a charm.
