Makes sense.  I know that there has been talk on here about fitting a carbon fibre ring that would take up the same perimeter of real estate as your bushing but I couldn't remember the context of that thread. In guitarmaking, it is not at all uncommon to use either plywood for the lower block or to laminate a cross grain piece of spruce onto it.  Of course, with no edge margin and just by the way the instrument is used and handled, guitars are more prone to splitting in that location.  Is your bushing spruce?  Is it taperfit? 

I use a CF ring around the endpin hole. It's installed with The Peg Ringer Tool.  I put one ring on each side of the block. 

I must admit Guy's method of a hardwood bushing makes a lot of sense.

Cleaned up one of my older cellos a couple of weeks ago.  Made new with sharp clean edges, now with 15+ years of wear and worn varnish from playing.
