It was about one year ago this week that Peyton and I were in Aspen Colorado, one of our favorite towns to hang out in. I had the great pleasure to deliver this Commissioned Fluteto one of my favorite people who works and lives in the Aspen area. In fact this is one of two flutes that I made for customers in Aspen that we delivered during our visit just a year ago.
Crafted from Alaskan Yellow Cedar this flute featured Sapodilla Totem Rails and a Mustang fetish also crafted from a piece of Sapodilla. For this project I crafted a handmade cabochon made from a remnant piece of Catlinite (Sacred Pipestone) that came from a pipe project I had been working on. Hand shaped and finished to a statin sheen this stone was finally bezel set in Sterling Silver and then inlaid into the body of the flute.
The stands are both functional and simplistic in design. For this project these stand cradles were also made from Alaskan Yellow Cedar. The bottom of each stand has a felt pad to protect stand and surface they are set on and the cradle area also has felt padding to help protect the flute itself. These are very cool little stands that you can set on any surface for display without having to do any mounting.
This was a beautiful sounding flute tuned in the key of D# because of its larger bore. The long aesthetics of my hand crafted flute designs make for wonderful functional art displays while also possessing the soft wonderful voice that an Alaskan Yellow Cedar crafted flute delivers. The owner of this new flute now has it mounted in a place of honor in his home and is one of our favorite people to visit when we travel to this part of Colorado.
Yes, Aspen Colorado holds a special place in our hearts and we always enjoy our time there. As we get ready to travel this weekend we are looking forward to some awesome Fall weather and of coarse, a few places to eat or two….

Simple yet elegant six hole Port Orford Cedar flute. Hand crafted and voice by Wyoming flute artist Timothy Jennings. True Old Growth Port Orford Cedar continues to be rare and hard to find. We currently have a fairly nice stock of this lumber if a flute such as this interests you.
This is a 1″ inch bore flute with a longer Slow Air Chamber and block giving this flute an overall longer aesthetic. Both Totem Rails and the Totem (fetish) were crafted from river reclaimed Sapodilla.
Unique to this flute is the hand cut Elk Antler cabochon that was crafted from Wyoming harvested elk and is bezel set in Sterling Silver and inlaid into the body of the flute. Over all this was a very nice commissioned flute.
If you would like to inquire about a flute like this being made for you please reach out to Tim Jennings via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or give him a call (307) 690-0427.
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.
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.
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
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.
New flute and the third one built with this color scheme. This five hole flute is crafted from Alaskan Yellow Cedar and is finished in a high gloss Acrylic Orange. Tuned to the key of G @432 Hz this is a wonderful sounding and easy to play flute.
Under Construction Now
This flute is in the final stages of construction and will be available to ship within a week or so. For more information on this flute CLICK HERE
Another commissioned flute finished early this year found a home in Montana. This Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute was finished in Acrylic Red and features maple totem rails and maple Mustang fetish. Like it’s twin completed last year, it was tuned to G @432 Hz. A very nice looking and playing flute.
I personally am excited that it’s new owner Nakoa Heavyrunner from Poplar Montana. Nakoa is one of the best flute player I personally know. He is well known in Indian Country as an accomplished Pow Wow singer and he and his brother Donavan appear on RezKast Radio. Check them out early mornings.
I am hoping Nakoa will be kind enough to pass some recordings our way so we can share with the world his amazing flute playing talents. Enjoy Nakoa Heavyrunner…

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.
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.
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…
