Several times over the past months we have hand crafted a smaller Native American Flute that is greatly suited for carrying with you in your backpack when you hike into the back country. The last NAF flute we made in this size was crafted from a reclaimed piece of Hawaiian Koa and it was really a cool flute and found a home right here in Wyoming. So we decided to make a new one and this time the wood of choice was from a piece of Old Growth Port Orford Cedar.
This flute was crafted from a single piece of wood and the flute is 21 inches overall length and it features a 3/4 inch bore. This is a five hole NAF flute tuned to the key of A at 440Hz and features the Four Winds tuning holes. The cutting edge is crafted from a single piece of inlaid walnut which provides a very nice color contrast between the woods. This flute was tuned at an altitude of 6400 feet and a temperature of approximately 65 degrees. The fetish was crafted from the same stock of wood and it is our Otter styled design. The fetish is attached to the flute body with a single piece of hand cut Buffalo hide lace, black in color.
This flute like all of our flutes was hand planed to achieve its signature shape. Although this flute does not feature any added accents it is a beautiful little flute and it plays beautifully. The body of the flute is finished with more than 20+ light coats of high gloss lacquer. The inside of the flute bore and slow air chamber were also sealed with many coats of finish to help prevent moisture absorption. Small enough to put into most any backpack you can take it on the trail with you, in your car, on your bike… this is a really nice flute.
Port Orford Cedar not only makes for a great sounding flute but as you can see from these pictures it also produces simple elegance. All flutes ship with a hand crafted flute bag to help protect your flute. Shipping is in addition to the price of the flute and we prefer to ship our flutes via FEDEX. We do not mass produce these flutes and these backpacker style flutes are truly one of a kind. Each flute is signed by Timothy Jennings, the artist and the key of the flute is imprinted on the body next to the signature.
