Native American Indian Flute with an Australian twist #5: Finished

3 days ago by icemanhank | 6 comments »

Hi everybody, I have finished the flute now and I am very happy with how it has turned out. I was quite concerned about getting the finger holes correct and had some help from Charlie Mato-Toyela who spent about 90’ on the phone from the USA to Australia to help me get the pitch and the tuning correct, Charlie is a indeed wonderful person. His Youtube page is Blue Bear Flutes which I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who is contemplating making one of these lovely instrument...

...in Which Tim Makes a Rake

21 days ago by Tim Anderson | 4 comments »

Ever since I bought a house, I’ve found myself doing too much yardwork, and not enough woodworking. I decided I could use yardwork as an excuse to woodwork. Rather than buy a $45 aluminum landscaping rake that I would probably only use 4 times in my life, I decided to use the old rake handle I found in the yard when the snow melted and a 2×4 to make my own. The first step was to remove the broken end of the existing handle: With this done, I started shaving off the end with m...

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

22 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.

Some of you all asked for this, hope you are not sorry. You can look back to my projects to see my first which is a teardrop style. This will be a hourglass style made from walnut and maple.Started the day by drawing a plan then cutting and planing some walnut for the sides 1 7/8 by appx. 34 by .130 which will be .125 after sanding. Since this is a hourglass style you need a form for the steam bent sides I made the form from some 2×4’s glued side to side for the width and added a p...

Live Edge Cherry Coffee Table from the Beginning #3: Removing the Bark

33 days ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

I left the bark on the piece for my coffee table, but thought if it ever became a problem, I’d take it off. My understanding is that the bark is safe to keep on if the slab has been kiln dried. Air dried bark will have bugs. Since this is a gift, I’m taking the bark off from the beginning. The bark was pretty stubborn on this piece. i’d heard that some folks find an angle grinder handy to do this. I found it helpful, but not as helpful as a more sophisticated tool I ...
