Hand-Carved Branch Flutes


I carve these flutes from downed limbs found here on the farm. Red cedar seems to make for the nicest sound, which works out well since windstorms left a couple of cedar trees lying in my yard.


Before & After

—————————————————————————————  While I do use some power tools to hog off large hunks of material from the rough log (jointer and hand drill primarily) I do most of the shaping with a draw knife, files, and sandpaper

Flutes can be tuned, more or less, to the key of your preference. Keep in mind, though, that I’m making these out of a stick. The inherent qualities of the wood (hardness, knots, age, etc) make perfect intonation highly unlikely. They’ll sound and look very cool, but don’t expect concert quality from a tree branch.

I can easily personalize your flute - via woodburning - for no extra charge. I can also make them 3, 4, 5, or 6 holes (with 6 being preferable if you want a full scale)

I usually carve my dolphins from basswood, but have  done them in walnut, ash, butternut, and even tree limbs and old lumber. I can obtain many different hardwoods (cherry, oak, purpleheart, cedar, etc) if you have a preference.

Custom sizes are also available (up to 18” long).

Bases are generally natural, carved from downed limbs or weathered barnwood



Walking Sticks & Canes

I have many sticks available for Immediate shipping 



I cut all of my own canes and sticks, and then whittle & wood burn based on your personal design ideas and favorite quotations.
