Topic: Great Flickr Series on Oboe Reed Making

I just ran across a beautiful series of photos on flickr.com showing the many steps of oboe reed making starting with splitting and gouging.  There are at least 84 photos in the series so far.  The photography makes reed making look almost "glamorous".  If anyone needs some visual inspiration before they go back to the reed table, take a look at this slide show.  Be sure to click on the little "i" in the middle of the photo to read the descriptions.  My compliments to the person (The Kruger) who posted this series:
