Chestnut Branch Flutes

Creating a flute from a branch is exciting and rewarding, as I see how the wood guides me and listen to what the flute’s voice will be.

Here’s a video with the four Chestnut branch flutes that I just finished making. In the video, I play two of the flutes to let you hear their voices. You’ll also be able to enjoy a short walk in a Florida hammock on a sunny afternoon.

  1. They do have a beautiful sound all there own. Love the stroll through Florida Hammock — can feel the sunshine.


    1. Aren’t they sweet? It’s starting to get quite hot now, 88F, here. At least the bugs aren’t all out in the heat when one walks through the hammock!


  2. Good sound from the flutes


    1. Thanks, Tootlepedal. They are smaller than a soprano recorder and would go on a countryside bike ride in a pocket or pack. 🙂


      1. Hint, hint.

    1. Thank you. I do enjoy both making and playing them. A voice of their own.


      1. You do give me many great ideas! Thanks so much


  4. I can very well imagine how rewarding the experience of making them can be. Making a flute out of wood is something that has been on my mind for years now, but making one out of a branch really makes it unique and gives it personality. Congratulations on your results!
