Someone is making saxophone from wood, everything from wood, hand made, claimed to be in tune and unique sound.
Anyone interested in trying =)

Looks good, maybe for furniture ornaments or room decoration

Gives a whole new meaning to the pharse, "he went to the woodshed".

This same topic and example was posted not too long ago. It is likely an Asian (I believe Thailand) made "novelty" item at best, but pretty as a display.

Maybe this the way it was meant to be all the time. (Woodwind)
I always wondered why saxes weren't made of wood before I played one.

The guy said its guaranteed playable. I dont have the link as he also doesnt have a website. These pics were sent to me by a friend and I managed to get the contact person.

If anyone interested I will forward his email for you. He told me he will send a video of this horn being played. I am too interested with this and maybe I want to buy one just for collection.

He told me that it needs a month to make 1 horn so its a custom job and purely hand made.

Just dont break it hehehe, its not brass =) Once you drop it, its history

I think I'd end up breaking it in my hands! I'd be scared to play it!

It can be a nice collective item, but if it's made exclusively from wood, then it won't be playable for too long, the wood parts will eventually warp
