Port Orford Cedar Nears Completion

Port Orford Cedar, Sapodilla Rails & Totem

Currently I have been working on Two 1 inch bore flutes crafted from Old Growth Port Orford Cedar.  This particular flute is just about done other than final finish choices and some tweaking on the tuning.  Which on this flute is tuned to “D” @ 432 Hz.

I really cannot get enough Port Orford Cedar as it is one of my favorite woods to craft flutes from.  This one has a very pleasing deeper voice giving it a soothing melody.  The totem rails are crafted from river reclaimed Sapodilla as it the Totem or Fetish itself.  Once again this flute will feature my signature whimsical mustang.  This time I am crafting it out of the same Sapodilla the totem rails are made from.  This should be a stunning yet eloquent flute.

Currently I have this flute finished with a Satin/Semi-Gloss finish but more than likely it will end up with a high gloss finish.  Although this is a fairly large flute the finger holes are positioned with comfort in mind.  This flute like all of our flutes will ship with a protective bag as this recent completed flute did.

The price point has not been set and there is still time to add adornments such as hanging horse hair, feathers or even an inlaid cabochon.  Port Orford Cedar is almost impossible to get anymore… this is a very nice wind instrument just about ready for a home.
