A boxwood musical instrument

Recommended Posts

Very cool and unique, Yuri! I dabbled with Native American flutes (NAF) for a short while while teaching a class to make them, and used a small offcut to make an ocarina with the upside-down/inside-out NAF sound making thingy, but never thought about carving one. I found the tuning method strange and interesting. Excellent job - I may have to rethink this...or maybe not. I'm not sure... :rolleyes:

 

Is there an easy and foolproof way to make the sound-making thingy (the fipple?) like on yours?

Thanks for the comments.

Tsterling, no, there isn't. I make a lot of professional quality musical instruments, so carving the fipple is by now second nature to me. It isn't actually difficult, you just need to know exactly what you are doing, and why, and then it's just a matter of keeping to very close tolerances. I'd say that that part is no problem to just about all members of this forum. It's the understanding of the actual engineering part that takes some learning.
