Picture of When You Can't Find your Harmonica: Carrot Flute
I've wanted to make vegetable instruments for some time.  I found a couple of links to a carrot flute and a carrot kazoo, but they did not have pictures.  So I tried a few different techniques.  Here's my recipe for Carrot Flute.  I'm providing this in multiple forms.  Instructable with pictures, short form instruction video, and long form experiences.

I recommend viewing the short form video, printing the instructable for your work time, then viewing the long form video (so that you can see what I did).

Step 1: Gather your ingredients for the flute

You will need:
A drill and bits to make a large and small hole. A 1/2" drill bit and a 15/64" bit worked for me.
Sharp knife
1 or more carrots
Cutting board
Long, narrow tools to take carrot debris out of the hole.  E.g. skewer or chopstick.
