Kim, I second the auto body repair putty “Bondo” for the pattern.
or – whatever similar product you can find in your area.
liquid epoxy would work also if you can control the exothermic heat
generated by the product you use.

I harvested some Grenadilla wood when I lived in Guantanamo Bay
back in the ‘70s which is used exclusively for wind instruments such as the clarinet.
very easily turned on the lathe. does not hold an oil finish very well.
if you can find some in your area, I would recommend Grenadilla over cocobolo.
(and I think the Grenadilla is much more health friendly than the Cocobolo).
for examples, google: Grenadilla Wood Mouthpiece
