Making didgeridoos is a challenge in and of itself. My agave didgeridoos are hollowed out by hand as opposed to being split and hollowed. This not only ensures the structural integrity of the agave cane but also avoids the unsightly split line running the entire length of the instrument.
Crafting multi layered mouthpieces and matching bell rings is a true wood working talent. After the wood is selected and sawn, the grains are aligned for aesthetic quality, and the pieces glued together under pressure. Mouthpieces generally end up round, but the bell ring must be shaped to fit the large end of the didjeridu exactly.
