This is a xylophone that I made out of cherry and walnut, it sounds pretty good but could still use further tuning. The keys are tuned by sanding material off of the back in a radius (thinner at the center)

That a neat project! I too would think a sound clip would go along nicely with this post!
Nice work!

This is my first time to see a xylophone made of wood. That is very ideal and fantastic! LEGIT! :)
