The dimensions are important.
I ideally would like a range :
Radius from 25mm to 35 mm
Cut Height 10mm to 15 mm
Let me explain exactly what I am doing. I am trying to make a double reed for a musical instrument from seasoned cane, usually arundo donax. The outside diameter of the cane varies from 18mm to 26mm. To make the reed, the cane is cut into lenghts, usually 110mm long. I then split the cane to get the required size e.g. 14mm wide. Each side is sanded/planed to get an exact consistent width along the length of the strip. The cane is then gouged on the inside to remove surplus material. It is then finished on a curved sanding block of desired radius. You end up with a strip with the centre being 1mm to 2mm thick, and the edge being sharp. I can then begin to build the reed from this strip. Using this technique I find it very difficult to get consistent thickness along the length of the strip, so I thought that if I used a router I might improve my accuracy.
