Unknown # 40
I encountered this bagpipe early on in my travels. It had been burned and was split and was headed toward the bin. I confess that I really didn't know what I was doing, but I knew I didn't want to see it thrown away. I learned a few things, including not to muck about with something I knew nothing of. If you look closely, you can see how I "whipped" the bass mid section. The wood was so incredibly dry I was afraid it would split worse.
