Eagle flute

Large custom Native American walnut eagle flute in the key of Low A with walnut stand. This concert quality flute is over 30" long and is tied with Alaskan Caribou hide. The stand has traditional Yup'ik symbols burned into it and is padded with caribou to protect the flute.

The wooden flutes I make are generally all two piece bass flutes. They are made from a variety of hardwoods and come with or without a stand. If a softer wood is used for making flutes, the splitter is inlaid and generally made of a harder wood or other hard bone substance.
