Mitering Organ Pipes
By Craig Smith

Manda asked about mitering the bodies of several pipes in her organ
project.  She wrote, "... they will have hardwood fronts before
mitering, they will alternate between hardwood front/whitewood back
and whitewood front/hardwood back, after each mitre joint."

Well, that only happens if you do it on purpose.  Instead of cutting
at a 45-degree angle across the pipe and turning the next section
around, cut out a 90-degree notch and simply fold the pipe over in
that direction.  Of course, you'll have to make the pipe a little
longer in the first place.
