I asked my Dad if we had any 5/8 inch pvc pipe. After looking around
the house we had to go to Home Depot for it. My dad had to buy a 10ft
piece for about 15 inch's of pipe. So now I can make a lot of flutes.
getting the pipe I asked dad if he would help me measure it and cut it
he showed me how to measure it at 15 inches and mark it then he took a
special tubing cutter and showed me what to do - - - he put it on the
pipe and I turned it and tightened, it and turned it some more until it
was cut after we measured 7 holes in a straight line. The first hole
was marked 3 1/2inches from the left 4 inches from that hole I marked
it again from that hole and marked it again a inch from the third mark,
and then another 1 inch mark from the forth pencil mark we then
measured 5/8 inch from the fifth mark and made another mark then I
marked it at 1/4 inches from the sixth pencil mark it should be about 2
¼ inches to the end with a 5/6 inch drill bit. I drilled all 7 holes
after that I pushed a cork in the left end until it was about a 7/4 of
an inch from the first hole drilled.
Then I got to decorate it
anyway I wanted. I then named it the White Polka a Dotted flute. While
I tried learning how to play my flute I learned about pitch, dynamics
For a high pitch I would cover all the holes except
for the first one. For a low pitch I’d cover all the holes except for
the last one, for a louder Dynamic I would, blow harder and for a
softer sound I would lightly blow on the flute.
It makes lots of noise, as well as peaceful and pleasant sounds.
