Article SummaryX

To make a bamboo flute, start by cutting a piece of bamboo that has at least one node on it where the stem is solid. Next, wrap sandpaper around a dowel and stick it in the hollow end of the bamboo to smooth the inside. Once it’s cleaned out, use a drill or rotary tool to create the oval hole that you blow into at the end of the flute with the node. Then, drill consecutive holes farther down the bamboo for fingers holes that allow you to play different notes. For tips on how to find bamboo to make a flute, read on!
