"Siblings from a piece of amazing timber. My eyes popped when I found this wood in my searching adventures as I imagined what could become of it through my craft.
Such a wonderful material to carve, fine-grained, so smooth and receptive of my closest attention and intent. The way they responded to the finish and the appearance of subtle chatoyancy*, make these ones exceptionally beautiful. A fragrant olfactory blend of cedar, beeswax, linseed, and smoked buckskin. These two have quite the sensory personality.
Fine voiced and tuned for the most discriminating player.
Truly one-of-a-kind instruments." 10/1/19

# "Aromatic cedar" is actually a species of juniper, the prized material for the best old cedar chests because of its durable nature and fragrant pest control properties, but also a dream to carve and what color. I never use any kind of stains on flutewood. Store one of these flutes with your woolens.
