Here is my finished flute, if you would like to check out the process please have a look at the blog for more pics and the storey behind making this lovely instrument.

It plays in the key of G and is finished with 6 coats of Scandinavian oil and multiple coats of Australian bees wax.

A huge amount of help was given to me by Charlie Mato-Toyela of Blue Bear Flutes and I thank him greatly.

Thanks for looking, please be kind to one another.

Cheers David

Very nice flute! I have made one, it was fun to build but is not nearly as pretty as yours.
