I used my Makita compact metal band saw to cut a section off of the pipe. You can use a hacksaw too. I just like using this band saw whenever I get the chance to in a project. It’s cordless.

We want to remove the rough edges of the cut copper. The burr is removed and we can move on to the next step.

I had wet the thin strip of wood and then wrapped it and used tape to hold it in place.

We will apply some ca glue to the copper. I’m using the thicker type of ca glue here.

We wrap the thin wood around the copper and clamp in with paper clips.

After the glue dries we remove the paper clips and the wood is securely fastened to the copper.

I also use an orbital sander as I go up the finer grits of paper.
