Gary,

I like Fernando's suggestion. I (even) have my barrel and the top =
section of
the wood milled carefully to "extend" the mouthpiece table....so that a
standard Bb reed sits perfectly on the face of the mouthpiece. I work =
the
sides of the reeds to work great on the mouthpiece. I've had great =
success
doing it this way.=20
