Jarrah burl with Ebony and Jarrah accents

I came across this amazing piece of Jarrah burl wood but it was so badly checked (cracking) that I initially did not consider it would make a good flute but it was so nice I had to buy it anyway. After some thought I decided to try it by using jet black crushed stone inlayed in the cracks to seal the wood. Combining this with African black ebony and Jarrah accents this really turned out to be an amazing looking flute. The inlay process was time consuming but I think you'll agree it was worth the effort.

The totem is of the same Ebony and Jarrah laminated together to create a striking contrast in the abstract form of a wave to represent water. Tuned to high B this little guy sings loud and clear.

Spalted Maple and African Ebony

Click image for larger view

The first in a series of Spalted Maple flutes I will be making. I came across some maple boards with some amazing spalting in them, enough for about 50 flutes.

Combining African black Ebony with the black spalt lines in the maple, ties it together. Finished with 3 coats of pure non-toxic tung oil and a final coat of natural beeswax. For the Totem I came up with this abstract design that represents water in the form of a wave.

Aromatic Cedar and Payung Rosewood Fm

I have wanted to make some flutes out of aromatic cedar so I went out and picked up a board and got right at it. The grain of this wood is amazing with swirls and knots that really stand out and colors from whitish yellow, pink and reds. The flute has 2 coats of walnut oil and finished in a high gloss clearcoat then polished to a glass like finish. Concert tuned to F4 minor pentatonic.
