A classic table to be sure. I\'ve never understood how you make tapered reeds like this.
I wrote a tutorial on the method I used and posted it to the Badger Pond forum. (That might give you some idea of how long ago I built this table.) However, it was not converted to an article, so I can\'t just link to it. I still have copies of the text, photos and drawings I made, so I think I can figure out how to post it here. How to read the steps in chronological order may be a problem for those who want to follow the process. This is the first one of these I did, so the way I did it is probably not be the same way Jeff Headley or Mario Rodriguez or Glen Huey or Frank Klausz would do it, but since it worked, it\'s a \"right way.\" Reading my original description, I see that lots of things have changed, so Im going to have to make some major revisions. Stay tuned.
