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.

Upgrade your Commissioned flute or add accents to one of our already crafted flutes. Most of my customers who buy a flute from our shop would prefer something a little more unique than just a nice flute. For some just adding a small leather accent is enough while others request something more individualized that holds a special meaning to them.
Hand Made Cabochons
On of my favorite accent to add to a custom flute is a hand crafted cabochon. Personally I like the looks of a bezel set piece as it helps both define the edges of the stone selected as well as helping the cabochon pop off the flute. No two flutes or cabochons are the same and each one is handcrafted individually in our shop right here in Wyoming.
Some of our favorite stones to work with are Picture Jasper, Wyoming Black Jade, Wyoming Harvested Elk Antler, Hand quarried Sacred Catlinite (Pipestone) and other unique stones we come across. These stones can be bezel set in Sterling Silver and then set into the flute or if preferred no bezel at all.
These are just some of the images of flutes with cabochons and some of the Cabochons themselves. Accents in addition to the inlaid cabs are hand mades beads, stands and Bison leather accents. Customizing a flute for just you is a very special journey. The satisfaction of owning a one of a kind Jackson Hole Tim Flute, one that plays beautifully and at the same time becomes a beautiful accent piece to your home or office decor is a journey worth taking.
Alaskan Yellow Cedar Large Bore Flute Ready for Glue-up
This is a brand new flute being built from the ground up. This flute is being crafted from Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar and will feature Sapodilla Totem rails and fetish. The Fetish is to be determined at a future date. This will be a fairly large bodied flute that features a 1 1/8″ bore. More than likely this will be tuned in the Key of C#, D, D#, E.
Updates for this flute will be posted and a brand new page for this flute will be added to our website in the coming days. We are ready for glue-up so the shaping should begin fairly soon, right after we add the totem rails, select playing hole placement and shape away. This is going to be an beautiful flute both to look at and play.
If you are interested in securing this flute before it is completed reach out to us by phone, (307) 690-0427 or shoot us an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”. It’s going to be a very nice flute.
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
Just completed this Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute is ready to ship. Six hole flute tuned to D #440Hz. This has been one of my most popular designs, that being a 1 inch bore flute with my whimsical Wyoming Mustang fetish.
A larger flute by design but yet still very comfortable to play. The Mustang fetish and the Totem Rails are both crafted from Sapodilla which has a wonderfully warm tone and the contrast is very regal. This flute ships with no bling accents but if wanted a hand crafted cabochon make a nice addition.
Ready to purchase at $365.00 plus shipping. For more information and how to order 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.
Earlier I made a post about three new flutes that I had started one of which is this Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute that will be finished in Acrylic Orange. This is an update specific to this flute.
The rough shaping and placement of the playing holes are complete and it is now in final shaping and sanding stage. Once the flute is shaped and sanded I will tune it prior to the final stages of finishing. As this flute gets down to it’s final shape it is going to be a beauty.
As planed this flute will also get my Wyoming Mustang fetish crafted from maple as are the totem rails. The flute above which was the first in orange for me found a home in Texas which seems appropriate as the color fits.
This flute is available to purchase ahead of completion so if interested visit the web page specific to this flute.
This flute was a favorite in 2019. Currently under construction this is a new 7/8″ Alaskan Yellow Cedar flute with plans to tune to the key of F or F# @ 440 Hz. She is all glued up with totem rails in place ready for the shaping process to begin.
All of my painted flutes are crafted from Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar. This flute like the one before it will feature my signature Mustang totem and ship with a protective bag.
This flute is currently available for pre-purchase. This post will be updated as progress is made. CLICK HERE for more information on availability of this flute.
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.
