A Unique Design to Save Orphaned Wood
I call these Special flutes because the wood that they are made of is rescued from what would otherwise be waste. This wood comes from the edges of boards after Backpacker, Craftsman and other flute blanks have been cut out. Ordinarily these thin pieces of wood would be wasted. And I hate to see good wood go to waste.
The Special flutes are actually a bit more time consuming to make than the Craftsman flutes. But I offer them at the same price. The finished flute is very strong and stable.
