Being that this is made of wood, doesn't it make it technically a marimba (not xylophone) ?

Cool tho'

Cool and original idea, Johnny.
You've got to find a way to post a sound byte so we can hear how it sounds!!

Wow Johnny! These works are great - I especially love the slit gong - well, I love 'em all. Great stuff still! Just fantastic.

Thanks guys ( and gals)
Conga-- Yep, Straight from the Sepik river, although I think this one would have stumped them.

Big daddy-- Tikiyaki actually led me in the right direction. He properly named it a marimba, and a google search led me to several clues how to tune these bars (not keys). Thanks for the compliment as well.

AlohaStation-- this has been a fun project. One that took a whole lot longer than I figured it would. What a huge learning curve.

Gman-- What's goin' on in my head? The drums, the drums they just keep beating a different beat than everybody else has.

Mudbone-- If you can hear me over the rest of the Motown music, I had better quite down. Thanks though, we should get together sometime when it warms up. Tiki is rare up here.

Benzart- Sure, I will teach a lesson, but it would be the first one where the teacher keeps asking the student for pointers and tips. I would learn a heck of a lot more than you would. As for what village I came from: it would be an honor if a PNG artist even acknowledged my work.

Grapa-RuHa -- My daughters aren't laughing now, they have banished me to the garage. Actually my oldest says this is the "coolest noisemaker you've (me) has ever made" From a fifteen year old, I thought that was actually a positive thing.

Lake Surfer-- Winter does strange things indeed. It makes us see mirages of swaying palms and gently pounding surf in all the snow drifts. I just wish it were easier to spend some time outside carving. this stint of temps lower than the mid teens is getting old. Any body know of a cheap house in Florida I can buy?

Buzzard-- Thanks, What's next???.... I really dunno.

Gman-- Frozen, yep, afraid to go outside, it's 12 degrees right now, just about the warmest it's been all weekend.

Seeksurf-- Thanks

Tikiyaki, Thanks for tip, a marimba it is, since you gave me that clue, I was able to find some great information to help me tune the bars, thanks again. I really appreciate it.

Bowana-- you are right, we need to get a way to post sound bites here. Then we could sample all the great musicians that call TC home.

Benzart- Finished, less the stand. Your support has pushed me into this, It's all your fault.

Clarita-- Cool? I hope you think it has stayed that way. Nice job on the pendants.

Hey Gap, welcome back. Whacha been carvin'? Nice to hear from you.

Finished, less stand. It is about 6.5 feet long, pine log, hollowed out from below in slit gong fashion. The log cracked and checked pretty severely as it dried and I clamped and gorrila glued the checks that really would have damaged the piece. The cracks were so bad, I would have had to cut one end off, but I was able to save it, the remaining cracks just add authanticity to it. The log is displayed on is under snow, but it is at least 24 inches in diameter. The snow adds a weird element to the pictures and made the exposure setting difficult to show the detail.



















Thanks!!
