简介:木琴

关于:当我五岁时,我的爷爷让我进入了木头工作。从那时起,我已经被迷上了。我喜欢在没有什么之外创造一些东西,让一些旧的新东西或使用垃圾来制作美丽的东西。...

I have two beautiful nieces that I love very much. At the moment they are 1 and 3 years old. That is such a fun time for Christmas presents. For the three year old, she is crazy excited to open all of her gifts no matter what they are. She is at that age where she gets super excited about everything. Also, she is still young enough to enjoy homemade presents so I am going to take advantage of that.

不幸的是,将来会有一个时间的自制玩具变得不太可取的时间,然后是廉价的塑料。我明白了,这些不是华丽或大声,随着年龄的增长,你从这些玩具中获得的刺激有点重要。

但幸运的是,对我来说,他们仍然足够少,在任何玩具都很有趣。所以我想制作他们可以使用他们的想象力来玩的东西。将终于那些便宜的塑料玩具。我的侄女年轻人喜欢爆炸,无论她能掌握一下。所以我认为木琴将是完美的。

虽然我知道将有一个时间进入玩具盒或阁楼,但多年来没有看到,当它再次出现时,它希望它会看起来相同,工作相同,更加被爱,而不是它在开始时。

So here it is, my wood xylophone. I hope you enjoy this instructable and give it a try. After all, the very best gifts come from the shop... I mean heart... Same thing.

Step 1: What You Need

Some thin wood scraps
我用过橡树樱桃和核桃

斜切锯

Bench sander

主轴桑德

Drill press

Felt

Small pegs

Wood Glue

第2步:切割一些木头

我的木地毯项目留下了一堆额外的木头。我不得不为此削减很多长的瘦小件,他们为木琴工作了完美。我使用樱桃核桃和橡木,因为我想要木材中的对比看起来真的很酷。最后,我看起来很棒,但不同的树林使调整块困难。

I started by cutting my longest piece at 9 inches. I cut a total of seven pieces and I cut each one 1/2 inch shorter than the last. When I was done the longest was 9 and the shortest was 6 inches. I played around with different cut lengths but his one looked best in the end.

在我所有的剪​​切之后,我用板凳桑德彻底绕过了街区,以确保不可能获得银色。

Step 3: Tune the Blocks

我之前没有意识到这一点,但事实证明,正确调整块在制作一个工作的木琴方面是必不可少的。我绝不是专家,但我会解释我如何尽可能地做到这一点。

Like I said before, each block was cut a half inch shorter than the one before. I thought that the length of the block would have the greatest effect on the tone that it makes but I was mistaken.

Turns out that is it the groove in the bottom of the block that determines the tone. I used my spindle sander to make the grooves in the blocks. I started out sanding everything but the outside inch and a half. This gave each one different tones but not enough to sound pretty.

你脱离底部的越多,音调就会越低。我做了一个小型支架来检查音调。这只是一些废木,伸出橡皮筋。我会划过橡皮筋上的块,看看它是如何响应的。如果听起来有点高,我会花更多的东西。如果它听起来过于低电平,我伤口稍微脱掉街区的落地末端。有些人真的全力以赴,并使用调谐器来获得完美,但我没有。也许是我的下一个。一旦您处于降临的基调,您可以附上它们。

第4步:设置块

This process is really pretty simple. The main goal here is to not let the blocks come into direct contact with the rail. This will ensure that you get the best sound out of your blocks. Also, I have been using the word "block" to explain this throughout this ible but I'm not sure if that is actually want there are called. Hope you still understand what I mean.

首先,我将7个孔钻进轨道,与我计划使用的钉子相同的尺寸。我确保我没有太深钻孔。即使钉子粘在地位,我也希望块变松。然后我在块的每一侧钻孔。那个洞比我在爆炸上拾起的钉子大小。

I used some adhesive backed felt to make sure that the blocks were not in contact with the rails. I punched a hole in them and stuck them to the rail. I slid the pegs through the blocks and glued them into the rails.

第5步:槌

For the mallet I didn't want just a plain old boring one. I glued two pieces of cherry together and let it sit overnight. I drilled a hole for the dowel and then I took it to my bench sander and gave it all sorts of weird angles. There was really no rhyme or reason to this. I kept sanding until I saw something that I liked.

我把销钉粘在一起。一件定制的槌效果良好,看起来非常酷。

第6步:结论

我的一岁的侄女打开了这个圣诞节下午,这是一个大的击中。她喜欢敲打和街区,听到她正在制作的声音。成年人似乎也有一个美好的时光。

If I were to do anything different, I would take more time tuning the blocks. I was in a bit of a hurry with Christmas right around the corner and a few gifts left to make so I hurried that step and i regret it. With a small amount of work, you can tune the blocks to sound close to perfect... Next time.

谢谢你,读到我的木琴。我希望你试一试。这不是一个艰难的项目,结果很大。我会鼓励每个人都要尝试一次尝试一次。它绝对比在商店里挑选东西肯定更困难,但它也更有价值。再次感谢

    写得非常好,以及你沿途所学到的精彩故事。
    你的声明非常诚实和开放后:“Also, I have been using the word "block" to explain this throughout this ible but I'm not sure if that is actually want there are called." I really don't know the right word either!

    我将为我的两岁的双胞胎孙子制作一个。

    Best wishes and thank you.

    你好呀!自从我为一个项目做这一点以来,我刚有一个非常重要的问题。在调整过程中,我可以使用那些电子调谐器中的一个来了解当前的音调是什么以及我需要减少或增加它?这是否适用/会更接近完美?

    This is like reading Santa's blog. Nice toy, and nice story. Congrats.

    先生,做得好!

    有关你的问题 - 在你开始打磨/调整你的街区之前,你的碎片有多厚?此外,如果一个人听起来比其他人更好,你有没有注意到三种不同的树林?

    谢谢!

    我很抱歉我花了很长时间才能回应你的问题。当我开始调整它们时,是3/4“。就什么木材听起来最好,樱桃在我看来最好的声音。如果你决定让我真正喜欢看一张照片。谢谢你的评论。谢谢你的评论。谢谢你的评论

    你在技术上是一个有马马巴的马拉巴。木琴是金属。Glockenspiel是木琴的游行带模拟。除此之外,我觉得你做得很好!30年前,我制作了类似的仪器,但使用紫色的心脏碎片,部分是因为我有它们,部分是因为它是一个非常坚硬,致密的木材,提供了一种可爱的语气。

    美丽的。我会为我的孙子队尝试。

    @ Jayf49,你描述的乐器听起来很漂亮。

    Slight correction: It is a xylophone (the word xylos means wood in Greek). A marimba is a type of xylophone with resonators underneath, and is a descendant of the African balaphone. All metal barred instruments hit with mallets are glockenspiels, be they the stationary or marching type. It would be cool to put resonators underneath and make a mini-marimba. Maybe one could use aluminum conduit or thin stainless steel tubing. Food for thought

    哦。好的。我站立纠正。谢谢你矫正出来!

    是的,它表明是一个非常漂亮的四八度仪器。很多思想和计算进入了它。涉及当地的高中乐队老师,因为他有良好的范围调谐器,也有助于计算。这些天你可以购买便宜的调谐器,但仍需要做数学以获得近似尺寸。数学和音乐携手共进。太糟糕了,我也不熟练。

    漂亮的建设。良好的指导。要获得钥匙的最佳声音,应从每一端2/9支持它们。

    只是一个提示:标题中的“木头”是不必要的,因为木琴总是由木材制成(Xylon字面意思是木材)。虽然伟大的工作!
