    Default Building an ALL WOOD cookoo clock - Bellows question

    Friends-
    I am new to this group although I have made wooden clocks in the past, I want to make an all wooden cookoo clock for a friends birthday. The question I pose is how do I construct the bellows and sounding units for the cookoo sounding and what materials are used for the leather bellows? I am a flute maker also so I know how the sounding labium is constructed but I need info on basic dimentions of the bellows and box.
    Thank you

    Hi
    The size of the bellows really depends on how much air is needed for your individual
    flute and how fast you expect it to run. You may need to experiment some. If it is
    a little over sized, you can always reduce the lift.
    You can make experimental ones with paper bellows ( won't last long ) until you find
    a size that works well with your flutes. You can use the leather material or the
    longer lasting tyvek. Both can be bought from places like Timesavers.
