Thank you all for your encouraging comments... That makes me want to open a shop immediately
Alas, I have other duties and I am sure that I won't sell in the near future. Sorry about that. Maybe I sell these prototypes when I one day have made some even better ones for myself :p
The double is waiting at my working place, I hope that I soon find time to continue with it. I will post pictures of it here. And I have found the next pieces of nice looking wood... just laying next to my double. Depending on its outcome I may even try a triple next :p
Experimenting is sooo much fun
Ah, I found something out during this making session. The windway should be narrowing in width and height. Not only in height, as I've done it this time (An experiment to optimize the speed in the working process). It is possible to get nice sound out of it, but its harder, as you have to work more accurate on the sides of your voice hole.
Nice one, AdamR45!
I thought of making an ocarina in that way too, but as I had enough wood and carving tools already I started right out with a sweet potato
Try one made out of some harder wood, that will cause less splinters around the holes, then it would look really professional.
Or you just bevel the holes of this one a little to cover the splinters and then start polishing it and oiling. That will make it look perfect
I like the positions of your fingerholes, they seem to be very comfortably set for an inline
