    also, i've found it's best just to moisten them and jam them in my ears. pulling my ear back before inserting them and the letting go seems to cause the flanges to cut into my canal in a painful way.

    where does one get thick blocks of high quality wood? and other questions...

    the wood need not be anything special. a softer, heavier (heavier being most important) wood would be best. a low price would be good as well. and by high quality i mean free of imperfections. no cracks, knots... anything like that. what type of non powered tools are used to shape wood...
