Beak Test: Wood

I couldn't find any off cuts of oak, so i used beach instead. I had to continue using the metal lathe instead of the wooden one because since my beak is so small, the chuck in the wooden lathe is so large that it would make no sense. As this is against health and safety rules, I was not allowed to turn it myself. I drilled the holes, Roddy shaped it.

This took only 1 hour to do as wood is so soft compared with metal and, i had learnt a lot from making one the day before that i knew what i needed to do.

This also needed a larger spring (4 rings) and sounded softer.

This is a video of it working:
