I met a local flute maker today.

“Little Hawk” from Free Spirit Studio. He had some of his own flutes at a wood carver show.

Check out his website at www.freespiritstudio.org

His flutes sounded amazing. He suggested that when I make my flute, I make it as long as from my elbow to my finger tips from blow hole to end. Then make the holes one hand width from the blow hole. There should be three holes, two fingers apart, then the next group of three finger holes should be three fingers down. The final three holes are also two fingers apart and should be a hand width from the end.

The finger holes are tuned by making them larger. They are also affected by the thickness of the flute.

It was my lucky day.
