    Thanks folks!

    I always wanted to make a recorder or a flute, so the competition was the pretext to turn one, at last. I used a drawing I got on Internet, but I had to adapt it to the size of a usable fountain pen. I had to adapt it on two other points: the hole is conical and I don't have the right tools, and the mouthpiece plug is tricky to make if you follow the rules, I decided to make a simplest one. In the end, the recorder is playable within a bit more than one octave, but I have to use unconventional fingerings to stay in tune for one or two notes. I can nevertheless play a very decent God save the Queen with it!!! La Marseillaise is too difficult.
    An interesting thing in flutes is the tenon wrapped in greased cotton thread, the violet stuff you see on mine. Strong and airtight. Flute players adjust it (adding or removing some coils) to adapt it to the moisture. I had fun to use it for the flute parts (as well as threaded wood - I mean like a screw - for the pen section to stay traditional) and I wonder if I will not use that in a pen...

    I think maths are of no use, I never heard of a flute maker using maths except for bills. Find a drawing and stick to it. Then work on the holes for final tuning...

    Many years ago in fact in the 70,s a mate of mine left a country town where I was for 5 yrs to go to the prestigeous Sydney Conservatorium of Music instructing lecturing in Flute and similar instruments. He made and sold them as well.

    His now and for a real marriage was to one of his star pupils

    In the last year or so I made contact with him to give him pics I had used in our Photographic Studio mounted on Figured Masonite. I commissioned him to make me a miniature instrument. It never happened so when I saw your entry I literally shouted YES. On the IAP there was a guy some yrs ago made miniature units became a penmaker who inspired me with his pens made from them.

    So well done Pierre.

    Peter.

    An excellent concept Pierre, and well executed. A very worthy winner. Two winners in a row for you now I think - you're making the rest of us look bad.
