  • Today, I'm going to show you how to make a recorder, out of a carrot. 'Toot Toot'

  • Start by taking a carrot, this one measures about 20cm long and 3.5cm in diameter

  • And cut about 5cm off the end

  • Next take a drill bit like this, this one measures 19mm

  • and carefully start drilling into the end of the carrot.

  • You can do this all by hand, or if you have an electric drill you can use that.

  • Take it slowly, be careful not to hurt yourself, and make sure you dont break through the side of the carrot.

  • Clean all the debris out, you can wash it under the tap if you need to

  • Then take a sharp knife and make a cut roughly 1 inch down from the top roughly 1cm deep.

  • Then drop the knife back another inch, and cut a wedge out of the carrot.

  • Keep going untill you have something which looks like this.

  • Next we need to make a plug to fit inside the bottom part of the mouthpiece

  • So take the carrot tip we cut off earlier, cut off the very end

  • And usig your knife, carefully slice off bits until it makes a good tight plug into the mouthpiece.

  • Next cut a small flat at the edge of the plug and slide it into the mouthpiece

  • So the flat lines up with the whistle cut, like this.

  • We should now get a whistle. 'Toot Toot'

  • If you want to you can cut away the back of the carrot to form a more comfortable mouthpiece.

  • Next use a 5mm drill bit to make a couple of holes into the carrot.

  • I did the top hole 4cm down from the whistle cut, and the next one 2.5cm below that.

  • 'Tune'

  • And there we have it, our finished carrot recorder.

  • You may need to adjust the plug slightly to get all the notes

  • And once you've got a good understanding of how it all works, you can make something a little more complicated.
