Pre-Glued Native American Flute Blanks Ready To Shape and Tune

fluteblankglueup

We stock a limited supply of fully completed blanks that have been pre-bored to specific bore sizes.  Each blank listed on this page prior to gluing were sanded and sealed in the very same way we seal our custom flutes in our shop.   We pre-seal the inside of the flute bore, slow air chamber and blow-hole.  The windway has been completely hand constructed for you and the flute blanks have been pre-glued together.   Each flute blank plays a base note and it has been adjusted to reflect a fundamental note.  You can still change this note higher if you want within the limits of the bore size.

These partially completed flute blanks are ready to shape and we recommend hand shaping them with a good sharp block plane. There is nothing more satisfying than hand planning your flute to the desired shape.  Something you cannot achieve on a lathe.

Hard Work Complete

If you have never built a flute from the ground up this might be a good way to start.  We ship every flute blank with three proprietary drawings that are great guides for your to follow.  Pricing is primarily determined by the wood species and quality of the blank set.  Each blank set has been hand crafted and glued up by Artist Timothy Jennings.  Some blanks may feature inlays in the windway area to help achieve both an aesthetic accent and in some cases to strengthen the cutting edge.

NEW Shaped and Ready to Tune blutes

I have at the request of others decided to complete several flute blanks to the point that they are ready to tune.  In these almost complete flutes there are pilot holes already drilled so you do not have to figure where the playing holes and Four Winds Tuning holes go.  They are shaped and sanded to the point that you can do the final tuning yourself.  If you want to shape it further or add things such as feather accents then now is the time to craft those features.  Also you can add stones at this point.  A lot of time goes into these blanks to get them to this point so the price points are a bit higher.

It is important to note that each blank has been crafted to the point that it is ready to shape and finish by you.  Because we do not pre-drill pilot holes for playing holes or 4 winds tuning holes there is still flexibility for you to change it up a bit.  Generally you can raise the note higher than what we targeted the blank for.   If you have questions please reach out to me at “timjen333@gmail.com” or call (307) 690-0427 – I am here to help.
