Howdy folks,

I make Native Flutes, and do not use a lathe to make them round.
Instead….I use this Spokeshave Mule that I constructed.

Using a draw knife (or a spokeshave) you can preety much make square stock round, and it gives it a handmade look as oppose to a factory made commercial look.

If you want to see the CherryCows Spokeshave Mule in action, see this YouTube video:

If you want a set of DETAILED drawings on how to make your own CherryCows Spokeshave Mule, see my website:
http://www.cherrycows.com/SpokeShaveMule.html

You will actually have two projects:
(1) making your own Spokeshave Mule
(2) using it to do other projects

Enjoy!

Looks like it might work for “Love Flutes”.
