Low G, BHF Series

I found a left over piece of 4x4 western red cedar from my boys cabin and thought I would try a large bore flute. At 33inches total length 1 3/4 inch bore and 27 inch bore length, this would test the limits of my boring skills.

Shown with Mid F flute for comparison

The cedar is accented with black walnut and finished with tung oil to bring out the grain of the wood, once dry I will finish it in a durable high gloss clearcoat finish.

What does BHF stand for? Big Honkin' Flute. I'm already planning to go bigger for the next one.
