I have had many people say that I “make beautiful flutes”. “Thank-you”, I say, “but I do not make Flutes”. “I take a piece of wood and just remove the chips and sawdust to release the Flute that is within”. That being said, if ever you have the chance to rescue a piece of old wood from destruction, please do so. I am very envious of a man I heard about from an East Coast town who happened upon a demolition team tearing down an old house. All of the valuable items had been removed. He saw an old 3-foot long piece of wood that was too damaged to be salvaged, and of no value to the salvage crew. Once he got it back to his shop he was able to cut a plank from it. (Note, a plank of wood that is 1×4 x 24 is perfect for my needs.) What he was able to create was the most beautiful NAF that I have ever seen. It was not his craftsmanship that I marveled at but instead it was this piece of wood that was over two centuries old. It still had life!
I hope tht you liked my Native American Style Flute.
This one is played by the recording artist Scott August

They actually sound as good as they look.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and look at the photo.
I really appreciate it.
Oh BTW, if you enlarge the photo it’ll show up better.
