Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #2: Making the flute

20 days ago by icemanhank | 6 comments »

I have a couple of pics so far. I had to make a join in the timber so I dowelled it together at the block of the flute. I think the next step is to join the pieces together and start shaping the outside. I have heard it is a good idea to finish the inside of the SAC with a waterproof finish to stop any condensation getting in there and ruining the timber but am unsure if I should do this or not.

But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

Carving a small spoon

133 days ago by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...
