I was asked to make this thing called a mini sax. Made from malpe and bloodwood. I’ll hope to hear him tune and play it when he gets a chance.

A beautiful piece, but how did you know the distance between the holes? I’m also curious how the mouthpiece is made.

- Dutchy


The guy that asked me to make it had a plastic one, but always wanted it out of wood. I used it to get the hole size and placement. The mouthpiece is a stock sax mouthpiece that slips on.

Really interesting. Did you hollow and shape this on a lathe?

-- Nathan, TX -- Hire the lazy man. He may not do as much work but that's because he will find a better way.
