I start out with a 1×4 x 24 board and rip it to get two 24” blanks.
Then I router out a Bore and glue the two halves together.
I use a Spokeshave to get it round and end up getting it concert tuned.
Each Flute takes about 60 hours.
I wrote a Shop Manual on how to make the NAF.
I sell that book as well as my flutes on my website.

To fully apprciate the photo, you will want to enlarge it.

Thanks for looking.

Kind regards,

Wonderful. And I bet it produces sweet music too. Well done.
