Candy,

These chimes are simply beautiful. To tell the truth I would hate to set them outside in the elements. These are art and should be place in a display cabinet. But, of course, they would be muted if this were done. I am sure that their chimes are equal to their appearance.

Thanks for the post.

Candy, A Beaytiful set of Chimes, Love the way the wood contrasts between light and dark, as it twists and turns on itself. Did you stain it that way or is the natural beauty of that wood. In looking at the striker I am trying to figure out how it strikes the individual chimes. Are the chimes made out of anodized tubing or is it copper. Looking at them I’m trying to listen for them. I’d be proud to display them….your brother in woodworking John

We were pretty amazed at how fast the chimes sold, well actually how fast all of our stuff sells. The color and shape of the wood is all natural, we do not use any stain, it is finishes with polycrylic. This is actually called a wind harp, if you look at the chimes, you can see there is a tube that runs horizontal across the back, the striker is a ball so it rolls across the vertical tubes which in turn chime against the horizontal tube in the back. The tubing is tuned in for chimes so to speak, they are brass coated and I get them from a windchime parts supplier.

Thanks again for all your wonderful comments, what an inspiration and motivational force it is to be here.
