Musical instruments of all natures are made on the lathe. The recorder is a popular instrument since it's easy to learn and fun to use. It's often a beginner's first experience in the music world. So, give it a try, the results are very fun!
|Making a Recorder|
By: Philippe Bolton
In this photo tutorial, Philippe shows us how he splits boxwood to use in making a recorder. He then mounts the blank and shows us how he drills out the center and then reams it to size. He covers making the mouth piece and tuning the recorder. The description is rich in links which send you to new pages with more content on how to make the recorder. This is a great primer for anyone interested in this project.
