The first step was to find the spine the blank and I marked it with my China pencil.
The second step was to cut the butt's cork so I could ream it and make it fit. I used a razor blade to cut the cork. The butt of the blank is fairly large and I was worried that the cork's diameter was not large enough. It ended up barely being large enough. I used rod bond to epoxy everything back together.

I am going for the same type of handle and grip as a Steez MML 7'6 AGS. I measured the spacing on the Steez to see where the handle will go. If you look close, you will see the China pencil marks. I don't think I am going to use winding checks since there is a very minimal gap. I'll make wrap winding checks if I change my mind.

I also sealed the cork with U40. The cork is a really low grade and I wish I would have went with the EVA foam option.
