    I taper mine. I think tenor sizes are more comfortable to hold if tapered, and look better.

    That center piece is there to stop the back joint from opening up. The braces are plenty to support the back structurally....but a hard knock might crack the center glue joint. You only have 2mm...

    Squash the pipe if you can. I tried to bend a charcoal lighter once and it just broke on me. 2 1/4" is still too big for ukulele waist bends.
