I want to cut some stock for making flutes. What is the length and diameter of your beautiful flute?

thanks ya all! didnt use native american wood cos I am in the uk and used what I have including white pine redwood and maple lemonwood as well I dont buy wood I collect it from whatever scource I can!
if I could afford to buy wood then it would most likely be western red cedar which is traditionaly the wood to use, but different woods have different sound properties and I like to experiment, OK.

Mick, I’m glad that you join LJ, and that you can share some of your wood working experiences. Love your Native Flute, did you find purple heart hard to work with?.
what is the key and bore size of the one in the back.?

Hi! Den, the small flute is Padouk and is a high G, aye the p/heart is hard and quite brittle but an excelent turning material,
also made the dresser which its standing on.
