I happened on that amazing jarana clip I just posted via this photographer from the Bay Area named Mike Melnyk who has put together this incredible 345 picture step-by-step jarana making photo essay. Definitely makes me feel like I could make one, or, more accurately, half ass something with great energy. The pictures are really interesting. I was esepcially happy to see this because I had no idea how they made these things out of a solid piece of wood, though I knew that was the style.

His other photos are really good, you'll spent some time on this site...
