This book will teach you how to make the Native American Flute ( 5 or 6 hole flute). Using a band-saw and table router. No turning lathe is needed. Power tools are used in this book, making the job much faster. Flute fundamentals : Air is blown into the mouth end of the flute, it travels under the bird, and is channeled to pass over the air split. As the air is being split, half is going over the air split (outside the flute), the other half going inside the flute. This produces a harmonic vibration of the air waves. The holes in the body of the flute allows the air going inside the flute to escape at the flute holes. The flute players fingers, controls the air escaping at the flute holes. A different sound (note) is heard as the air escapes the body of the flute, at each hole. The sound is different because the wave length is different at each hole. The shorter the wave length the higher the note (pitch). The longer the wave length the lower the note (pitch). Lots of detailed information and photos, and tables.
