mounting servos on a round boom fuselage

I'm just about finished with my "and_now", http://www.flyelectric.ukgateway.net/an8.htm but I have one obstacle left.
I used a carbon fiber boom in place of the specified 3/16" square spruce "fuzz stick"; what is a fuzz stick? I purchased a 3/16" spruce stick but it was way too flimsy.
My problem is how to mount the servos on the round shaft.
I normally wrap the servos with tape and CA them to the fuselage stick, but this time it is round.
Any ideas? I want to fly in the morning.

Thanks!

I use a 2" piece of carbon rod (same as the one I use for the 'fuse') and glue it parallel to the main boom, under or above it (sometimes I use packing tape). Then I glue two servos, one on each side.

=== : carbon fibre rod (or tube)
....: the servo

thanks Danny,
It's late and I'm getting bleary trying to get this thing ready for tomorow.
I was trying to make a sandwich of balsa using the carbon tube as a thickness guage.
Much easier to just epoxy a piece of the tube itself. lol

Thanks again
