Native American style flute in key of G. All natural materials. Cherry wood. Flute block base of Cedar (to help absorb moisture from breath) and Eagle (rough as it is) carved from Walnut. I’m not very good at 3D carving yet but I’ll get there eventually. Nice sweet tone and near perfect on the electronic tuner. 6 Holes. Made for a graduation present in June. Approx 3 inch breath hole and 3 inch slow air chamber. 15 inch sound chamber, .75 bore. Multiple coats of Danish Oil on flute body, Mineral Oil on mouth piece and slow air chamber/flue area. Flat glass beads in colors indicating Native American Directions, White for north, green for south, blue for east and black for west.
