I think most of you out there have seen these videos of my pipe building but for the benefit of those that haven’t hear they are. I’m talking a bit fast in the videos as I had a lot to cover in 10 minute limit for YouTube. I had flu at the time and wasn’t up to recording.

Anyway if you haven’t seen them before please let me know what you think.

I also did a video on Tuning & Voicing the above pipes.

Below are all the pipes in the videos above playing for the first time.

Well Phil, What can I say-congratulations for sharing your videos with us. A lot of your time went into producing them and the end result of a nice sounding organ must give you a lot of satisfaction.
I hope it will encourage others to have a go at building their own instrument.and that they too will share their efforts with us.
Many thanks. :tiphat:
George. :grinder:

Thanks for your comments George.

Perhaps I should point out I don’t usually build my pipes this way.
The videos posted in this thread by me only came about because I had a lot of questions about pipe building and voicing from people on YouTube that at the time was building one of John Smith’s organs. So I decided to put together a new project that would demonstrate pipe making in the same way as John Smith’s plans illustrates in an attempt to help eliminate any confusion or miss understanding of anyone building pipes for one of John’s organs.

Please remember I’m not a professional organ builder just an amateur.

I really didn’t want another organ of this type; it was only built as a means of conveying to would be organ builders how one could put together a small pipe organ.

The organ in the video is now fitted with an accordion and will be for sale soon.
