comment Do instruments get out of tune when you place them near a radiator?
Cold wind instruments play flat and hot wind instruments play sharp. This is due to air density changes and the affect on sound properties.

comment What's the theory behind the “80s” sound of a song?
@StefanoBorini: the theory extends beyond the chord progressions and phrases. It also applies to the texture of the songs, in fact probably moreso. This is why you can listen to a Jethro Tull song and know that it is Jethro Tull and not Pink Floyd; the two bands tend to stick with a particular texture, as they tended to use a unique combination of sound effects layered throughout their songs. With the occurrence that you are talking about, that texture was mimicked almost to a tee by multiple performers. This was also found a lot in Motown music, and still in modern pop (think boy bands).

comment Methods of creating woodwind instruments without a lathe
There is no reason, however, that you couldn't make wooden instruments in sections like I proposed, unless you are looking for traditional methods of making cornetts, specifically.

comment Methods of creating woodwind instruments without a lathe
From what I understand, the traditional way to craft a cornett is the way that you are already going about it. They would carve out (sometimes very complex) curvature on either half, hollow out the inside, then bind it together and set it with some kind of glue. Some were also bound using leather around the exterior, so I imagine that took the place of the adhesive, and the leather was probably shrunk after being wrapped, to create a tight fit.
