making-instruction with bore-through-technic
Step 5, shaping
|I work further with an other log, Marple, because the Oak-log
has a wood - artefakt and I put it aside fore a while.
This Marple has an s-bend, so it was only possible to bore through, with a third hole. You can see it in the middle of the pic.
It was the first time that I done it this way, it worked.
In the bell is a knot-hole, depending of the sound, I leave it open.
||View into the bell, the light is in
the third hole.
The bell will be ground.
|The bark will be removed ...|
|With a Stanley-rasp the wallthickness is decreesed slightly. It is not that fast as with a grinding-machine but the sensitivity with hand-tools is a lot better. It is quite possible with a machine-driven tool, that you come through the wall.|
|Slightly the wallthickness is decreased to ca. 1,5 cm. Of course you cant measure it but with light knocks you get a feeling where it is relativly thin or thick.|
|View into the mouthhole. It will be ground also with a cylindrical grinding head.|
