New Pipes

I have a pipe student.  That is someone who comes to me to learn to play the pipe.  She plays lots and so makes excellent progress.  

She offered to help me tune the pipes. So now my pipes are better tuned than ever.  And don't have to " second" as many as I can get the tuning more except.  AND that is something I am very fussy about.  My problem is that I can vary the pitch with breath control.  If a pipe is not in tune I breath it into tune.   It doesn't get correctly tuned then.  Help is good. Playing one pipe to another gets the best tuning result.

Here are some of my "super tuned" pipes.





























Among them are some firsts.  The very dark ones are from some Mahogany that a friend gave me. Never turned that wood before.

 The pipe third from the left is from red gum.  For this piece I had to try something unusual.  The wood was tooo short so I had to lengthen the wood.  

So I put it on  a stretcher and kept it there until it was the right length.   ......  Just kidding.   I glued the wood in such a way I didn't have a butt joint.     I cut the wood on an angle [diagonal] and then slid the two pieces until the result was longer, and then glued.  It worked.  It is hard to \see the two separate pieces now it is turned and polished.

The rest of the pipes are Matai  [six light brown] with two lighter ones from Apricot and Silver Birch.

The Silver Birch is a light wood that is usually very soft.  Weathering hardens the wood.  After three years the wood is hard enough to deliver a good sweet tone.  I like them.  The have a silvery sound.
