My take on making ocarina. Nice little project, that can be done with just a couple of hand tools.
The wood I am using is seasoned piece of cherry.
TUNING: first you get your first tone, without any holes made yet. You than find the position for fingerholes you find comfortable. You start by drilling tiny hole, which you than widen with knife and chisel. Continue to make the fingerhole bigger until you get the tone you want (bigger hole = higher pitch). Than you repeat for the second hole, third one…
I think once you get the air pressure right, it is very easy to play instrument ( I never played one before). This one has very nice, deep voice, resembling the voice of american native flute
