Decorative Inlay Veneer

I have to replace the banding on the lower left and upper right of this secretary.

I finally found the inlay, but they have not responded to my attempts to contact them. http://www.roxing.com/woodinlay3.htm
So it looks as though I will have to make it myself. I have plenty of veneer, but nothing as dark as what I need. I have never dyed wood and was wondering how well dyed wood will glue and accept a finish. I was looking at the Solar-Lux Black stain and was wondering what the Retarder was used for. I am also curious about the Homestead TransFast Dye Powder and the TransTint Dyes. Favorite brand of glue suggestions are welcome as well. I don't have much to replace, but would it be better to glue up long strips into a single board and slice what I need or individually cut each piece? If anyone has any idea where I can find this please let me know. It is 7.5mm wide, but I think 1/4" will be just fine. I looked at the antiques newsgroups, but they just looked like places to buy, sell and identify antiques. I thought this place would be a better choice to post such questions. Thanks.
