I know it sounds funny but I make all the instruments on my page but I don't know how to play them. I had one of the guys at work play it for me so I could see if it was right. Sorry no video.

The sad part is I don't know how to play any of the items I make. I have to take them to others that do. Some day I'll have to learn.

Curly Maple! Beautiful choice! That's what most Heckel bassoons are made of.
