This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Nose Flute #5 by Steven Parkes
Our friend Steven Parkes builds wooden nose flutes, from time to time, just for pleasure, but also for his children. We already showed his work (check this post). And here is the #5 – for his daughter Ingrid – paired with a 3D photo and a video showing the making process.

1) open the full size picture by clicking on it
2) stand at a distance of ±20 in./50cm
3) cross your eyes (squint) in order to get both left and right images superpose
And here is the video of the making, from the design to the Tru-Oil finishing:
