B Chanter

A B chanter I made 2 years ago, and some sound files of that chanter. Some fine playing by some fine pipers.

Patternmakers plane

I borrowed this patternmaker’s plane to see if it could be used for gouging chanter cane. It came with a selection of plane bases and blades in various radii; however, I found I could do a better job with a hand gouge in the end. It was nice to see some old tools up close though. patternmakers
