    new bell

    Here's a bell i did this AM. It's ebany and holly. The holly was just a cut off of a piece i used a while back, and i was gonna throw it away.but after looking at some that Kirt Fuller did, decided to try enother one. It's 4 1/4 long and the stick pin (i hope) gives you something to gage it buy.

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Very interesting the way you made the bell. The finial is nice, but I imagine there was quite a bit of hand work involved in sanding and polishing the "flutes" on the bell? Very cool...

    It's 4 1/4 long by 13/16 at the widest point, and 1/8 or so at the smallest. I'll add a pic sitting in my hand at the end of this post. the pic is a little blurry but you'll get a idea.
