I just started work on these two yucca stalks. They don't look like much now but they are diamonds in the rough. Both are fair sized, large bored and I anticipate will be low pitched with a "fill-the-room" resonance. If this sounds like something you're looking for or if you have questions, send me an email and let me know. Many thanks!
In early March of 2007, I went to a didgeridoo making workshop in Olympia, Washington. I loaded up the three yucca stalks I had into my car and drove 60 miles south from Seattle to learn how to make a didgeridoo. It was cold and snowed like crazy but we had an amazing time and I came away with a new love of making instruments. Since then, I’ve been making didgeridoos from yucca and agave for people who want a high quality instrument they can grow into.
Each instrument is handmade from start to finish with just hand tools. The only exception is making mouthpieces with a battery powered drill. It’s a way I love working because, I get to know the wood on a more intimate level which then guides me to bringing out the best of each instrument. Once they are hollowed out, I finish them with a non-toxic food grade epoxy resin for better sound and durability. Each didgeridoo comes with a custom-made carry bag for easier transport and protection when you travel with your instrument. Below are some of the instruments I’ve made. If there is something you see that you like or if you have any questions , send me an email. I’d love to hear from you and see how I can help.
Thank you for stopping by!
