I have had best results using either long rubber bands per Donn Shands direction, latex surgical tubing, or electrical tape. All three of these wound like a helix down the length of the flute. Because branches tend to be, by their very nature, irregular, I have had less success getting consistent glue joints using various clamps. I use Titebond 2 or white Gorilla Glue for wood (non-foaming type). I also occasionally use two part epoxy for really irregular wood like grapevine.
