The latter part of 2018 I started to craft some flutes with the intent to paint them rather than finish them in their natural state. This flute is one of 4 that I am either building or finished with. This particular flute is hand crafted from Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar and finished both inside and out in Acrylic Black.
This is a larger flute with a bore of 1″ and tuned to the key of D# @ 440Hz. In addition I have added a hand cut Wyoming Elk Antler Cabochon that is set in a Sterling Silver Bezel. I added a pair of Totem rails for the Mustang fetish and both the rails and the fetish are crafted from American Maple and finished in their natural wood colors.
I made a stand for this flute and like the flute the stand is finished in a high gloss black acrylic. The stand however is made from Old Growth Black Walnut harvested from the Boulder Colorado area. Final accents are the hand cut Wyoming Black Bison lace and I have added some Sterling Silver beads that have finally tarnished to their natural state and some red and black glass Crow beads.
This is a beautiful flute that not only sounds and plays well it will look fabulous in a prominent place in your home or business. One of my favorites to date.
Available for Commission
This flute like most of the flutes you can see here at jacksonholetim.com is available for commission. This was not a commissioned piece but one that I just wanted to build for my own satisfaction. This flute could be duplicated with other very cool colors other than black.

Just a brief post here… The first 5 of 25 new pre-bored flute blanks have been added to our “Pre-Bored Native American Styled Flute Blank” page. All five of these are 24″ in length, 7/8″ Bore with a 3 1/2″ Slow Air Chamber (SAC). The stop block is set to 1 1/4″ in width. Blanks pictured here are 3 Alaskan Yellow Cedar and 2 Russian Olive blanks. Also available on our eBay Store. More to come daily…
After a long winter and selling just about most of our winter inventory I am just getting ready to put the final touches on this batch of new Flute Blanks. In this batch there will be Western Red Cedar, Port Orford Cedar, Alaskan Yellow Cedar and a couple of Russian Olive blanks. Bore sizes will vary from 3/4″ to 1″ in this batch. All of these blanks will be available for purchase on Jackson Hole Tim and our Ebay Store.
In this batch there will be 5 Old Growth Port Orford Cedar blanks that are all matched and from the same board. These blanks are very unusual as they have the properties of Birds Eye Maple. All five of these blanks will be bored at 7/8″ and will feature a slightly longer Slow Air Chamber which should make for very nice Aesthetics. Each blank will be $52.00 each as these are very rare to come by. The other POC blanks are also very nice but from different boards.
Any of these blanks can be secured for a commissioned flute as well. If you are looking for an opportunity to own a truly unique flute blank then one of these five would be the ones. If you have interest to purchase message me and we can set them aside. Otherwise you will find them listed very soon.
Contact me by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org or call (307) 690-0427. To secure any one of these POC blanks I will invoice you for full payment and shipping.
