Bamboo Flute

The other day me and a friend made a flute out of bamboo.

Here we are using a propane welding torch to heat a nail till cherry red than burning the holes into the flute (using the burning method gets you cleaner holes with better sound).
Here it is with all the holes.
The finished product, its a flute but you can play it like a recorder.
Cool clouds again.

Note: I was asked to link to the guys website that we got the instructions from, but I cant find it.
