Alaskan Yellow Cedar Is Now Shipping

Just a snap shot of a couple of orders shipping tomorrow.   The first order above is a single board and two billets heading to a Luthier down in Texas.  The second order below are three 32″Long  by 10″ Wide boards all cut from the same board.  This is heading to a flute maker in Colorado.

Even though this comes from our rough cut stock we try to surface orders 2 sides like these on our Oscillating Drum Sander prior to packaging.   This is some beautiful cedar we have acquired here in our shop.

If you are looking for really nice Alaskan Cedar reach out to us as most of our lumber is not on our website.  No order is too small or too big.  Watch for the announcement when our Sitka Spruce and a new bunk of Port Orford Cedar hits the ground.

NEW CEDAR HITS THE GROUND IN WYOMING

The Lost is Found…

10″ Wide 8/4″ Vertical Cut Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar Boards

I am always on the hunt for the best Alaskan Yellow Cedar I can find.  This Bunk of Lumber was no exception.  I was offered a small bunk of 8/4 Boards that are ALL 12″ WIDE! Some are 16 ‘ feet long.  This bunk of premium, very expensive AYC boards represents the best of the best Mother Nature can muster.

Without hesitation I committed to purchasing this bunk and I needed to get it to my shop as soon as possible.  You do not find boards this nice all that often especially this wide.  So it shipped via Semi and somehow ended up in Grand Junction Colorado rather than Afton Wyoming.  Fortunately it landed at a business I know and they took very good care of this cedar until I could make the journey.

Yesterday my wife and I left the ranch at 4:20am and made our way 500 miles to Grand Junction Colorado and 500 miles back home to Wyoming.  We arrived in good shape and picked up the cedar and made our way back home arriving just before midnight.  These are very nice boards of which I will take some more pictures as soon as I can get them stored.

If you are looking for 12 inch wide 8/4 stock in premium vertical cut grain lumber this is it.  Watch for inventory to be added to our new pages for lumber in the coming days.

Sitka Spruce and Port Orford Cedar

Also coming later this month hopefully will be some premium cut VG grained Sitka Spruce and some Port Orford Cedar.  These will be premium grade materials perfect for musical instruments and specialty projects.

Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar Lumber

i have just secured a new shipment of true Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar boards that will be here first of next week.  This current shipment includes Cedar boards that reach lengths of 12 feet and all are 10″ wide and 8/4″ thick.  This is the absolute best of the best all very tight Vertical Grain milled boards.

In addition I have secured some larger cant trims that are 4 and 6 inches thick by 12″ inches wide and up to 6 feet in length.  These too are very nice solid AYC lumber that is perfect for carving, lathe turning and other projects requiring thicker stock.

 

Cut Your Own Stock

Are you a flute builder, relief carver, specialty cabinet builder, lathe turner?  The source for this kind of quality stock requires purchases that are rather large and difficult to source.  As in years past we will ship any size order, nothing is too small.  Save money when you purchase stock in larger quantities.  No orders are too large.

First Bunk ready for pick up. Old Growth Vertical Grain Alaskan Yellow Cedar

We expect to have the first boards on the ground here in Wyoming first of next week.  Watch for new menu items to be added to our website in coming days.  Links will list pricing and specialty boards as they become available.

Texas Juniper Flute Ready for A Home

TEXAS JUNIPER WITH MUSTANG FETISH

Check out this bad boy… This 1″ inch bore six hole flute is crafted from clear Texas Juniper.  This image really does not do this flute body justice.  I have always loved the color ranges in a nice piece of juniper and this one is no exception.

This flute features Maple Totem Rails and scheduled to have my Mustang Fetish.  Still time to choose a different species for the Mustang but Maple will look real nice.  Also add a hand made cabochon to make this flute completely yours.

Tuned to E @432Hz this flute as a nice deeper voice and sounds great.  Final shaping and tuning is complete and I an now in the finishing stages.  The finish will be a high gloss finish and accented with our hand cut Bison lace.

Port Orford Cedar Flute Finds Home in California

This is one of my favorite flutes I have made this year.  I have posted information about this flute before offering what I consider to be the best flute of 2020 so far.  Crafted from Old Growth Port Orford Cedar this large bore flute feature Sapodilla Totem Rail and my Mustang Fetish also made from Sapodilla.

Highlights of this flute was the addition of a hand cut Wyoming harvested Elk Antler cabochon set in Sterling Silver.  The 1″ inch bore of this flute gives it a deeper voice tuned to D @440 Hz.  Leather accents is our Wyoming handcut Bison lace.  Nothing fancy just a really nice instrument.  Simple Elegance achieved!

The new owner of this flute lives in Riverside, California and it is scheduled to ship late this week.  I will miss this flute in my shop!  As with all of the flutes I make I hope this flute bring them years of personal enjoyment.

If you like this flute as I do please visit the link below as there is a sister flute to this only crafted from Alaskan Yellow Cedar but features the same totem rail design and Mustang fetish.  If you think you might like to peak then CLICK HERE for more information on the sister flute available.

As always this flute is available for commission.  I still have some really nice Port Orford Cedar blanks.  Contact me at “Sales@Jacksonholetim.com for more.

Orange Acrylic Flute Taking Shape

Updated image 07/15/2020. Rough shape and playing hole layout identified. Final shaping and sanding under way

Earlier I made a post about three new flutes that I had started one of which is this Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute that will be finished in Acrylic Orange.  This is an update specific to this flute.

The rough shaping and placement of the playing holes are complete and it is now in final shaping and sanding stage.  Once the flute is shaped and sanded I will tune it prior to the final stages of finishing.  As this flute gets down to it’s final shape it is going to be a beauty.

As planed this flute will also get my Wyoming Mustang fetish crafted from maple as are the totem rails.  The flute above which was the first in orange for me found a home in Texas which seems appropriate as the color fits.

This flute is available to purchase ahead of completion so if interested visit the web page specific to this flute.
