Have you read the book on making Ocarinas?

Robert Hickman was very active here on TON for a long time, you might be able to get some information from his old posts on here if you take the time to search for them.

Sorry I didn't see the previous post asking that same question.

Most of the regular posters on here are glad to help a new maker that is serious about wanting to make a good quality instrument. The Ocarina community is small and people that are willing to make the instrument more mainstream are always very welcome.

I have carpal tunnel syndrome because of my many years of hard work, so I have to play inline Ocarinas. For that reason I don't have a lot of experience with the various makers products. All I own is Mountain Ocarinas, and One of Robert Hickman's Pure Ocarinas. I love the sound and feel of the Pure Ocarina but I can only play it for a few minutes without my hands going numb.

The inline oarinas are generally made from hard materials such as wood, metal or Injection molded plastic. I love the sound of it, but some don't like the different texture that you get from the Mountain Ocarina.

Doing research is always a good thing when you are starting a new project. You should realize that you will most likely end up tossing many of your early Ocarinas in the trash because you will have a big learning curve. Don't get frustrated and give up because of a few failures.
