You will need
- Open flame (campfire or a gas torch, for example) to heat the steel rod;
- Himself a steel rod with a diameter of not less than 12 mm;
- A potholder or a piece of rough cloth;
- Fine-toothed hacksaw;
- - Fine-grained sandpaper;
- A drill with a diameter of 6 mm;
- Old fishing rod made of bamboo;
- Linseed oil with a rag;
Rods cut from a piece of bamboo with a length of 45-50 cm and a diameter of about 20-25 mm. Cut it so that one end remains closed between the sections of the partition. Measure out and mark the location for the first hole at a distance of 25 mm from the end of our bamboo blanks. Let's measure 150 mm from the first markings and indented 25 mm make five more marks.
Take a steel rod and heated it in the fire. Don't forget an oven MITT to avoid burning yourself. This rod we put in the open part of the workpiece and pushed to all but the last partition to burn. In addition to the unnecessary partitions at the same time we get rid of the excess of fibers within the bamboo.
Heat the drill on fire, taking it out with pliers. The incandescent burn out drill holes in the bamboo at the places we marked. If the holes try to drill, our bamboo can not withstand the strain and burst.
Now turn the tube fine sandpaper and scrubbed her inside a bamboo blanks all the embers and the remnants of individual fibers. But if the hole for the blast is a bit narrow, at the same time to increase it. Just do not overdo it.
Cover the flute with a thin layer of linseed oil. Now let's try to play: put six holes in the fingers (three fingers on each hand) and blow into the inlet. With practice, you can try to remove one finger – we get a different sound. If you do not get to extract from the notes of a flute, it is possible for an empty bottle to practice. Touch the lower lip of the neck and blow into the bottle. Extract from the notes of a flute follows the same principle. Do not worry if you will not be able to play immediately. It requires a certain skill that you need to first develop.
