reed making tools

Post by piperwannabe » Sat Jun 28, 2014 2:57 pm

Hey all, I'm going to take a stab at making reeds as a precursor to making my own set of pipes. Can I get pictures or drawings of the tools some of you folks use, like shooting blocks and sanding blocks? Dimensions too? I have a large piece of maple that I was planning on using to make these tools.

Best way to do it.

There's probably all the info you'll need in the reed making section of pipers.ie.
