Mondays Wood..

I started turning these pipes on Monday.  Now look at them..[Friday]

Mahogany I have turned before, and the tones is always very good and clear. The other pipes are made up of five By-wood pipes and one of Pittosporum.  "Pittosporum" describes a family of small trees popular in New Zealand gardens as they are easy to grow native trees. The wood is very white.

I have just started on the blanks of Plane tree wood.  They have strong mottling in the grain....  like Rewarewa.

Unpolished and ready to be given its final shape....   The mottling of the wood is clear in this foto.

The pipe is shaped polished and in the ready to tune pile..... it is 'plane' to see how pretty the wood is!!

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.

I wonder why Pittosporum? I am curious why not every tree materials do not fall under instruments manufacture. Strange..
