Western Red Cedar with Jarrah

Cedar can be one of the nicest, yet modest woods to work with, it can also be difficult. Being a very soft wood you need to have very sharp tools and make every cut accurate as mistakes can happen very easy with the slightest of errors. Cedar can range in many colors from whitish yellow to red and browns.

The clean lines and red Jarrah accents Deerskin and matching beads make this flute stand out without being over the top. I have tried a Poly Urethane finish as opposed to tung oil and beeswax to help brighten the grain in the wood.
