How to Make a Carrot Recorder Ocarina by DaveHax
This is a reminder to look for inspiration everywhere and be open to new influences. During a recent camping trip, we had an ideal piece of wood to whittle a whistle, or so we thought. Turned out we had already gone too many steps in the wrong direction, but in the search for “how to” we ran across this video about making a recorder out of a carrot. I hate the recorder for numerous reasons, but this was doable. We had these tools and were able to switch gears and projects yet still create a musical instrument out in the woods.
Many times we run across ideas we want to create, or a path we insist upon following. Sometimes we can miss the bigger picture of what is possible by not considering a redirect as a better option.
