  1. Oak TV Stand | Custom

    This is a Television Stand that was completed on 9-10-2007. I didn't completely build the piece. It was started by the husband of one of my customers. The customer I built the Bookcase/End Tables and The Black Lacquer Bookcases for. Her husband passed away before competing them. After...
  2. Native American flute 1st

    Hi, I talked to a guy that made flutes and decided that this was something I would like to try so I got some information from him on the process and gave it a go. Overall I am pleased with this project and it does play fine, but as with all first there are some things I would do differently on...
  3. Lathe Fluting Jig

    This jig is based on one John Lucas demonstrated for the Gwinnett Woodworkers Association in February, 2015 (see: ). This fluting jig is a table that mounts in the banjo on the lathe. The cutter slides along the table against an aluminum fence. The table has a T-track with a set of adjustable...
  4. King Excalibur Murphy Bed | Custom

    This is a king size murphy bed that was completed in June 2009. It is my Excalibur style which are two doors and a couple drawer with fluting down the side. I was concerned with the doors. With the arch there is only so wide you can go, so I had to have the rails and style extended. I didn't...
  5. First attempt at a flute

    Made of red heart. Need to perfect the design though. It plays notes, but not perfectly.

  7. Native American Flutes

    (note: pics are clickable thumbnails…) i started playing native flutes back in 99' ,which lead me to playing many other bamboo cultural flutes from around the world.which then lead me to want to make my own from bamboo ,and eventually wood. this is what got me into woodworking in the first...
  8. Native American style Flute #15

    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...
  9. Native American style Flute #16

    Flute number 16 is an over-under double barrel Drone. It plays a constant G from the side with no finger holes. The way a flute is tuned (this one is G-Pentatonic) the fundamental note 'goes with' all the melody notes from the side with the finger holes. Strange, hauntingly beautiful sounds...
  10. Native American style Flute #17

    Flute number 17 is a side-by-side double barrel Drone, key of G-Pentatonic Scale. It was started after #16 but finished first since #16 had so much hand scraping in the barrels. (Had to enlarge 3/4" cove to 1-1/16" by scraping on #16). This one is the better model I think. It is walnut on...
  11. Native American style Flute #18 & 19

    Matched pair of WV Black Cherry beauties with WV Black Walnut mouthpieces. Actually made the first to be gifted to one of my all time best friend's friend. It looked, tuned and sounded so great I had to make a second identical one to keep!! Key of G-Pentatonic Tuning. These flutes were back...
  12. Flute Stand #2 (Bevy of Beauties)

    White Oak slab I found in the woods near a minor timbering operation. Made 5 pegs, 3/4" to glue into 5 slightly angled holes in the slab. I let the slab dry (slowly) a little over one year. No cracks yet!! I'm going to let it acclimate to my house then slather it in shellac.
  13. Bloodwood and Bolivian Rosewood Goose Flute

    Goose flute. Bloodwood with Bolivian Rosewood accents. One of my favorite combinations… :)
  14. Native American Style Flute-Key of G

    This is my 10 flute since starting about 3 months ago. This is a wild cherry with a hand carved Cedar 'bird'. I created it by using my DVR-XP as a hold with a carriage mounted router to cut the excess wood away thus lessening the severe sideways sress/flex that can occur on a long hollow...
  15. Flamed hedge goose flute

    Made this for a hunting buddy. Flamed hedge with bacote and bloodwood accents. As you can see from the picture, it works… :) All The Best! Doug
  16. Second NAF

    Hello again, this is my second NAF (Native American Flute). I made this one from Maple as the Main body and Paduuk as my roost or block. This one turned out a little bit thinner than I had originally planned but still works well and has a nice feel to it. I decided to add some feathers and beads...
  17. Tiger maple, Tulipwood, and Bloodwood goose flute..

    Tiger maple, with tuplipwood and bloodwood accents. A custom job for a customer hunting the marshes of South Carolina. Great combination of woods. Blows like a short reed goose call, takes little air to run, and has the deep throaty big gander sound to it.
  18. FireSong Flutes #12

    This is a flute made by special request of someone who found out I make them. This is my first actual 'commissioned' and sold flute. It is Black Cherry with a hand carved 'campfire' bird made of Walnut with a Beech base and with burnt in details. I have chosen the campfire as my 'standard'...

    Here is my finished flute, if you would like to check out the process please have a look at the blog for more pics and the storey behind making this lovely instrument. It plays in the key of G and is finished with 6 coats of Scandinavian oil and multiple coats of Australian bees wax. A huge...
