I have been busy in the workshop these last few days. I finished turning on Sunday. I now had nearly 40 pipe bodies to hole and tune. Starting Sunday I started with the Rimu pipes.
Here's the pile of pipes before I started on Sunday.
Here's what's left on Monday.
New Rims pipes. You can read the dates on them. 30 10 17.
The Rimu makes beautiful instruments. Some close-ups.
You can see the nice swirling Rimu grain. The wood surface holds the shine really well.
Even closer up.
Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
