Hardwoods

I make my flutes of various fine hardwoods, and some of Cedar, Maple, Cherry  or other exotic woods. The woods most often used are Curly Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Redheart (a beautiful, rich, deep red-colored wood), and Paduk (an orangish-red wood which deepens in color with age).

 

Wood Finishes

All flutes are fine finished with 3 coats of lacquer. I do offer an alternate  hand-rubbed finish that is silky and less shiny. I use bees wax and linseed oil for my hand-rubbed finishes.

 

Bored Flutes

I bore my flutes from a single, solid piece of wood without routing, or gluing.

 

Pitch and Sound Quality

All my flutes are concert quality and fine tuned as to pitch. The hardwoods add a bright, clear, crisp tone to the sound with more volume than most soft wood flutes (such as Cedar, Aspen or Cottonwood).

 

Birds

I make several different bird designs. My most popular ones are the stylized bird, and some Zuni fetish designs such as the eagle, bear, coyote, and mountain lion. I also offer custom bird designs. Please call for a quote.

Etchings are optional by request.
Standard etchings are of vines and leaves. 
Other symbols, etcetera by request.
