Blue, Green, Black, and a bellows
Finally back in the workshop after the weekend with Clandestine in Tx and competing at the Grandfather Mt Highland Games last weekend. I won the Pro Strathspey and Reel contest! That just makes me want to practice harder.I’ve got a very interesting set due at the beginning of next month made from blackwood with mammoth ivory mounts and here’s a picture of the bellows panels with some of the blackwood connectors roughly placed. The screw heads on the inlet will be covered with nickel nail heads at the end of the project and there will be a blackwood humidifier cap in the bottom of the other panel.The bags shown are going to be going on two medieval inspired sets to be played at the Pennsic event in early August and I’m working on a couple of olive wood chanters like the one I made earlier but with plainer ends.The band Teribus has an album in the printing presses now to be released at Pennsic and then at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck on Tuesday Sept 2nd and we’ll probably be playing these two bags and the two new chanters as well as some new drones.
