Thanks all.

Mcozma, I love the sound of wenge. It has a glass like tap tone unmatched by any wood I've used with the exception of Brazilian and Honduras rosewood. I've got some clips of an Engelmann/Wenge Classic model I could email you if you like.

Woody, good eye! I like it because it goes around compound curves with no problem. And yes, the cap really stiffens things up. I used to use solid lining but that was a real pain to brnd around compound curves. This is much lighter weight and about as stiff as the solid ones I used to use. It's kind of an adventure to make though. Because it's so flexible in both directions, it's even harder to rip into strips than conventional lining.
