At last all of the Carving is done. The 5 coats of Tung oil applied. Now the final touches and Corey comes to pick it up. He is putting on the head and says he can do a short video of it being played. When he does that I will Edit in the link if I can.

August 06, 2015 · 1,847 views

In this episode, I turn a sycamore Guiro, a wooden percussion instrument, for Charlie. *** Join me, Chris Fisher, the Blind Wood Turner, in my workshop. I started out in life as a regular guy, working in auto body repair at BMW, until one day, completely out of the blue, a rare virus (Toxoplasmosis) reared its ugly head and caused me to lose my sight in a matter of weeks. Despite the challenges of coming to terms with losing my sight, I refused to give up and, after four years I decided to take up woodturning so that I could make myself a vampire stake – I’m a huge horror film fan!

July 16, 2015 · 2,070 views

A two piece Djembe that can be done without a Steady rest and with normal tools. I do still recommend getting an end grain hollowing tool of some sort ring tool or hook tool.

By: DIY with Uncle Cy
July 13, 2015 · 73,950 views

I decided to slow the Time Lapse rate down and let you see a bit more detail of the process. I also had to make some improvements to my Steady Rest, i melted a wheel and found a bit more flex in it than I liked. Finding wheels in my area was a pain, luckily I found CAPPs bicycle shop in Topeka, Kansas had 1 set left (they don't carry skateboard stuff anymore) They were super nice and the shop was awesome check them out at http://www.cappsbikeshop.com/index.html

 

#32 Maple Djembe
By: DIY with Uncle Cy
July 08, 2015 · 3,578 views

Here is one for my Friend Yuval, who keeps challenging me with fun projects. In all actuality I have been making Drums for 25 years. It is why I learned to use a wood lathe in the first place. However this technique is very new for me this drum being only the 3rd one I have cut this way. Previously all the hollowing was done by hand with Chainsaws and side grinders, this is much easier, and safer.
