Flutes by ObscureStar Flutes by ObscureStar
Slowly getting better at making my own flutes.  The larger one is in E-flat, the smaller two are both in G.    All three play better than any flutes I'd made previously, I think probably because I have been taking more time shaping the mouthpiece, putting a sharper edge inside.  The big one and the unbound one both have lovely airy sounds and a very fast feel to them.  The bound G flute has much heavier walls and a correspondingly darker sound.  It would be my favorite but regrettably, in testing new construction methods, I cracked it. (hence all the bindings)  It plays quite nicely at the moment but I suspect it will not last.

All three of these flutes were oven-kilned.  A few hours and low heat.   A second batch I cut and bound are being left to slow cure in a cool dry place.
