New Mahogany Flutes

Today my post will be of two new Mahogany Flutes I have just finished.

The first one has a Howling Wolf I carved from some Aromatic Red Cedar for the block (Bird).

Howling Wolf Mahogany Flute with some creative turning at the mouth end.

This flute is tuned to the Key of G.

This next flute is also made of Mahogany and I carved an Eagle Head for the Block (Bird) out of Aromatic Red Cedar, a very detailed carving.

This Flute is also tuned to the key of G.

Hi, I came to look at your skywatch pic and got waylaid by your wonderful carvings. They are very beautiful, I also took a peek at your site and liked it very much. I really covet one of those butterfly bowls, exquisite.
Anyway I like the skywatch pics but love the flutes. Do you play? i will have to read back...
Oh and no I found no gold at the end of my rainbow, but my life is pretty golden anyway :D
