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 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.

Port Orford Cedar Flute Available Now

Port Orford Cedar D @440Hz

Just finished is this simple yet elegant six hole Port Orford Cedar flute.  Hand crafted by flute artist Timothy Jennings and fully crafted and voiced here in Wyoming.  True Old Growth Port Orford Cedar continues to be rare and hard to find.

This is a 1″ inch bore flute with a longer Slow Air Chamber and block that gives this flute an overall longer aesthetic.  Both Totem Rails and the Totem (fetish)  are 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 a very nice flute.

Alaskan Yellow Ceder Flute in Acrylic Red

Another flute on its way to it’s new home in Montana.  This Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute is another Acrylic Red and features maple totem rails and maple Mustang fetish.  Like it’s twin 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…

 

Port Orford Cedar Update

I wanted to update a previous post about this Port Orford Cedar flute that I have been working on.  As of this post I have completed the Mustang fetish and it is in the last stages of finishing.  Crafted from the same Sappodilla as the totem rails the combination works nice with the natural colors of the Port Orford Cedar.

New to this flute will be the addition of a hand cut Elk antler cabochon.  The antler was harvested from our own Wyoming Elk herds here in Star Valley area.  This cabochon is being set in Sterling Silver and then it will be inlaid into the body of the flute as shown in the feature image above.

One other small adjustment is that when this flute was first voice I thought it would end up a D tuned to 432Hz.  Well it is still a D but 440Hz was better suited.

This flute is available for purchase pre-completion for a significant savings in cost.  After completion the price point will be higher as it is only then I can total the man hours.  CLICK HERE for more information or CALL (307) 690-0427 or EMAIL me at sales@jacksonholetim.
