Functional Art

Nothing goes to waste! No matter how careful we are when we lay out our flute blanks we always end up with trim pieces that are not going to be used for flute making. Some of these trims you will find on post our website as single boards for purchase while other we repurpose into one of our fun Kitchen Utensils we make here by hand.

A couple of years ago we started our JHT Kitchen line of hand crafted wooden utensils. Last year we flat out sold out of what we had in stock as we are limited to what we are able to craft. Well slowly I am crafting more of these fun fully functional art pieces and we have some available now.

Newly Designed Multipurpose JHT Spoon

NEW SPOON DESIGN

Most all of our kitchen utensils are made from our Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar stockpile. AYC is simply one of the best woods for these utensils and AYC is awesome around water. The spoon shown above, you would think would have been one of the first I made but I finally got around to crafting this for our own kitchen. A simple ergonomically designed wooden spoon that can be used for so much over the stove.

JHT Medium Paddle Spatula

New Paddle Spatula Adds Functionality

Another fairly new add to our utensil is this Medium Paddle Spatula. Easy to use utensil that has a narrow paddle which makes it easy to get into wide mouth jars and such. Saute with it, simply stirring, stir fry veggies and more. Kind of a fun piece.

Use Wood NOT Plastic

As if our American Diet is not bad enough for our health. Just about everything you find for use in the kitchen is made overseas and out of plastics. Some better than others. Wood on the other hand is timeless, healthy and old school alternative. More and more families are purchasing high quality wooden made utensils for cooking in their kitchen. The only thing we add other than our labor is a Pure Food-Grade mineral oil before we ship.

Hand Crafted with Functionality in mind

Hand Crafted in Afton Wyoming

Like everything we make in our shop right here in Afton Wyoming. Like our flute, ALL of the JHT Utensils are hand crafted individually and NO TWO are the same. Easy to use, easy to care for and great for all your stove top needs. All though the price points are a bit higher than production made pieces if you take care of them they will last you for many years of fun healthy cooking.

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.

Big Red 5 Hole Flute Update

This five hole flute tuned to G @ 440Hz has entered the final phases of finishing.  The Mustang fetish has been roughly crafted and matched to this flute.  Next will be final detailing of the fetish and lacquer.

The flute is a very nice playing and aesthetically pleasing flute to look and listen to.  This flute will like all of our flute ship with a protective bag.  Almost ready for a home…

Big Red 2 Takes Her Shape

Big Red Update

This Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute has taken shape and is now tuned.  She ended up being a five hole G @ 440 Hz.  Crafted from Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar featuring Maple Totem Rails and my signature Wyoming Mustang fetish.

She is a beautiful playing flute and sounds great like all of our AYC flutes.  Final sanding is underway and then she will get her many coats of Acrylic and finally finished with a High Gloss Lacquer.  Like the flute before her she will be a beauty.

Wyoming Warriors Blood Lace

New to this flute is that she is a Five Hole flute and she will get our new Warriors Blood red Bison Lace.  This should add a nice finish to this flute.  We have ordered and will have this coming week some new bison hides one of which will be this hide color.

Because this is a five hole flute there is room for some customization for those who would like to have something truly unique.  Where the #4 hole would normally be cut is a perfect place for a hand made cabochon out of Catlinite or Wyoming harvested Elk Antler… think about it.

Big Red #1 Alaskan Yellow Cedar 7/8″ Bore G @432 Hz. Home is now Montana

New Photographic Mugs

 

Jackson Hole Tim Photographic Mugs

New for 2020!  Like our drink coasters we are also offering some of our selected Wyoming Photography on a really nice 11 ounce solid black ceramic mugs.  We looked at a lot of mugs and being a coffee drinker I wanted one that looked good, felt right in your hand,  microwave safe and easy to wash.

Some great looking mugs are a bit too large in that your coffee or tea gets cold before you get to the bottom of the mug.  Now you can take home some memories of our awesome state.  The perfect gift for those who LOVE Wyoming!  We strive to make all our products “Authentic Wyoming”.

Watch for the addition of this product line shortly.  In the meantime if you are interested in a mug reach out to us a “sales@jacksonholetim.com”.
