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.

What's the rush?


Straight out of the ‘What’s The Rush Dept.’ here at Querencia Woodwinds, is an instrument I’ve been building since 2011, and I think it’s done…..Oklahoma red cedar, interchangeable barrels, tuned to F#m with the shorter barrel tuned to the neighborhood of Am. The headstock has compression chamber wicking, thanks to the guidance of the late Leonard Lone Crow McGann, minimizing wet out issues during play. Materials in addition to the cedar include SE Asian amboyna burl, African ebony, copper sheet laminate, old Tibetan turquoise, a beautiful cab of Battle Mt. NV turquoise, Mexican fire agate, abalone, and rainbow topaz. The bore diameter is 7/8 inch. As always, stay healthy and be nice to one another.
