Sure:
Make a sandwich from 3/16 thick by 1 wide by 34 long cocobolo sapwood (in this case) and .010 black fiber/.030 maple/.010 black fiber, all glued with titebond type 2.

When dry, thickness sand the Cocobolo side to get the exact binding height desired, then rip the sandwich into .085 thick strips.

Run them through the thickness sander removing .0075 per side leaving the standard (my standard) .070 thickness that bends easily and is thick enough to do the job.

Nothing to it, assuming you have an uncle named Bob.
