Piccolos, bending sides
I've got a bit too much to post so I'd better get started. I have had two inquiries for piccolos and since it was a while since I made any of my stock model I accepted them as orders.
I have loads of good cherry wood, some of which I resawed by hand this summer. Last week I sanded it all down to thickness in the drum sander, remember this is my stock model not zero sanding specials.
And then I bent the sides. First I mark out the crucial points on the pieces, then soaked them quickly under the tap.
