Hi Beatrice. My own experience with Oboe reed making is that it's all very well watching the Utube videos and learning how to generally make reeds but the real art of it all is the last final 'touch up' to get the reeds to play nicely. It requires the finest touch of the knife in a way that only time will perfect. I've had a lot of practice finishing off commercial reeds. Even the last batch of Academy reeds that I purchased needed this final delicate finishing off to my own satisfaction. And they are being made by a professional Oboe reed maker at Howarth. As far as completely making your own reeds I reckon you'd have to make several hundred of them to finally get this art 'down pat'
