Ambrosia Maple Drone

Aromatic (reminds me of cinnamon) Cedar from Washington State. Excellent tone. Food safe finish.

Port Orford, Oregon. The western most town in the continental US on the southern coast of Oregon. This wood comes from this area where the mountains meet the Pacific Ocean. Sometimes called "Pacific White Cedar" it is reputedly the strongest and hardest of all cedars. This is what gives this Cedar such a clear, pure tone. I have used a food grade mineral oil, bees wax, carnauba wax based finish on these instruments to preserve the wonderful aroma of this wood. Also, some folks are concerned about the safety of some finishes, so this flute is for you. My urethane finish that I normally use is safe, once cured, but I've had a few folks who want a "natural" finish. Well, this is it. The Butcher Block Conditioner that I use on these flutes is completely food safe. No worries.

All that being said, check out these latest offerings. The tone is clear, pure and sweet. Tuning is "spot on". If this style and wood turn out to be popular, I will make the Port Orford Cedar Flutes a regular part of my lineup.
