i have just secured a new shipment of true Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar boards that will be here first of next week. This current shipment includes Cedar boards that reach lengths of 12 feet and all are 10″ wide and 8/4″ thick. This is the absolute best of the best all very tight Vertical Grain milled boards.
In addition I have secured some larger cant trims that are 4 and 6 inches thick by 12″ inches wide and up to 6 feet in length. These too are very nice solid AYC lumber that is perfect for carving, lathe turning and other projects requiring thicker stock.
Cut Your Own Stock
Are you a flute builder, relief carver, specialty cabinet builder, lathe turner? The source for this kind of quality stock requires purchases that are rather large and difficult to source. As in years past we will ship any size order, nothing is too small. Save money when you purchase stock in larger quantities. No orders are too large.
We expect to have the first boards on the ground here in Wyoming first of next week. Watch for new menu items to be added to our website in coming days. Links will list pricing and specialty boards as they become available.
If you are interested reach out to me early and get your name on some of this beautiful hard to get Old Growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar. We will ship individual boards or if needed we can surface them for your for a upcharge. These are all rough sawn kiln dried boards.
We have finally added back our page on available hand cut Bison Lace that is used primarily to attach your fetish or totem to the body of their flute. We are offering various colors as widths for purchase.
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.

Some days I just feel like cutting flute blanks. For me this is actually something I need to get psyched about in order to get them done right. There are so many steps that go into making a good quality blank not to mention the large amount of time that goes into each and every one.
I have been cutting flute blanks for not only my own projects but for flute builders of every skill level a very long time. I have cut flute blanks for more than 18 years and I would guess we have one of the best selections of ready to build flute blanks sets around.
For the past several days I have been going through boards and selecting what I think will make good flute blanks and cutting them to size with all the parts that are needed. Each and every blank gets drum sanded to exact dimensions for our jigs and then checked and double checked for accuracy. Finally each one is shrink wrapped to protect the integrity of each one prior to shipping.
One of my favorite woods to make a flute from is Russian Olive. Russian Olive boards always seem to have a twisted soul. But when I can find a board that I can render blanks from I try and spend extra time making sure they are right. These 7 pictured here are exactly what I like to end up with. 2 have already been spoken for but these are some really nice Russian Olive blanks sets.
If you are a flute builder or just a weekend warrior visit our Pre-Bored Flute Blanks page and see if you find a blank that you can transform into another magical wind instrument.
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…
