Re: contrasting end pieces
- Hi Joe<br>I simply make a sandwitch of the
contrasting woods that I want to add to the flute and glue
them together. Using a press to hold them together
while drying. Then I cut this wood the with of the
flute, and drill a hole the size of the bore of the
flute it is going on. Then make a square the size on
the end of the flute. After determing the length on
the flute I cut off the thikness of theis sandwitch
peace and glue it to the end of the already rough
finished flute line up the bore hole and hold it all
together with 4 #117 rubber bands. When it is dry I form
the flute it the finished shape. The enda are cross
grained to make a clean looking end, I also add a
contrasting wood to the mouth end to protect the end geain
from moisture.<br><br>Bob W.

file section. Just check it out.
