The flute I started many moons ago is finally complete.
More technical details are at The Pied Piper Visits the Shop!
This flute is unique in the following ways:
- It is made almost totally on the lathe!
- It has a +30 inch drilled cylinder. It is not assembled from two halves like most flutes
- It is a “D” flute so it has a deep and hollow sound!
- It is make of three pieces turned and then glued together!
- Its my first wood flute!
The wood is poplar (this was experimental), the finish is polyurethane.

Dennis thanks for your help!
Now I am gong to make a small wood flute with similar techniques.
Don’t forget to visit the store where you will find some interesting books on wood turning!
