Thanks, Alan! Made possible by you. 🙂

@MM — contact cement is a really interesting idea. I know you were talking about using neoprene rubber and I’m using wood, but it’s still interesting to think about… I was planning to glue the primed wood to the reed frame with wood glue, but now I’m wondering which would be smarter… it seems like contact cement would be a bit more conformal and maybe have a more reliable air seal, and if there was ever a need to remove the cover veneer in the future, it might be possible with contact cement, but with the wood glue it’s going to be more or less permanently fused to the wood of the reed frame.

I’m still leaning towards wood glue, but… interesting…
