It takes Jonathon Landell about 200 hours, from start to finish, to make a flute. In his Richmond, Vermont workshop, which originally served as his family's garage, he makes flutes by hand-- and he teaches others both how to build and how to play the wind instrument. Most of the instruments Landell makes for flutists are made of silver, but they can also be made of gold or titanium. We visited him in his workshop as he was working on one of his standard silver models.
