Number 15 is Wild Cherry with a Yellowheart Butterfly bird. It is F# and Pentatonic scale. I made it on an old Craftsman ‘Router Crafter’ resulting in super thin, super resonant walls. It may be a bit too thin, they’re about 1/8” thick. The router crafter puts no sideways torque on the flute so there is no flex or chatter. It is lacquered on the outside and has shellac on the inside of the bore. Ended up right at 24” long.

Speaking of the Router Crafter, mine is missing a crank handle. You wouldn’t know where I can find one, would you? Craftsman doesn’t make them anymore and I’ve been unable to find one on the internet.
