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.
