After building flutes for a number of years now, I sneeze sawdust, and it scares my cat. That being said, it is however an absolute drop dead, no joke passion for me. When I'm not eating sawdust, I'm searching the entire planet for the most beautiful, exotic/bizarre woods, and gemstones I can find. I plow every dime back into purchasing these items, in addition to a few margarita supplies....... I don't follow, or pretend to understand a lot of the cardinal rules of flutemaking, and the end product seems to indicate I'm better off for it. PLUS, I continue to make great friends on a daily basis, most of whom possess humbling talent. ...Ya won't find that working at a carwash, even if it does pay better.

 I find this instrument interesting, in that the majority of the three woods used, are referenced since the beginning of recorded history, and both are protected as a result. Specifically, Cedar of Lebanon, and Bethlehem olive. The majority of the stone inlay are labradorite, known for the healing properties of the crystals, as well as transformation and enhancement of personal strength. The flute has a 7/8" bore, is 16-5/8" inches in length, and tuned to Am @ 440Hz. A sound file will be available when it's posted to my shiny new website. In the meantime, enjoy Spring, gather responsibly, and hope the light at the end of the tunnel is not an incoming train.
