How to Carve a Flute : Filing Down a Wood Flute

to show you how I make these Peruvian flutes. I specialize in making these flutes, and I
make didgeridoos and drums, but today I’ll show you how to make a Peruvian style flute
out of black bamboo. Ready to fine tune this, this process right here takes about five minutes
if you know what you’re doing. You’re filing from inside so that you have a perfectly straight,
smooth surface inside. And you’re filing from outside here to get the perfect cut, because
when you blow into it, the wind wants to split perfectly in half, and that’s what creates
the sound. To make this flute sound good, you have to have a good mouthpiece. You also
go from inside. Ready to fine tune this, actually not yet, I’m going to open this up some more.
