Rainbow Eucalyptus Kalimba

A Kalimba is a traditional accurate thumb piano, a kind of percussion instrument played by plucking the thin metal tines. The commission called for using a healing wood, one that could nurture into strength, and this local rainbow eucalyptus worked perfectly.

The basic form is of a bowl turned on a lathe, with a laminated maple base and 3/8’’ eucalyptus top, with a carved maple bridge. 

6’’ diameter x 4’’ tall
