The slide/video here presents the manufacturing of all the carvings that were made in my shop. They were designed to decorate the new pipe organ built by the Noack Organ Company.

The organ builders built the pipe organ case in oak. I carved the pipe shades which also are of white oak.

There are 8 pairs of carvings in total completing the organ case: 3 pairs are half-round in cross section . The other 5 pairs are in a straight plan.
