You are asking how do I come to these prices . In the last picture I was making up 6 cedar flutes those blanks air dried for 2 years up a 100's of dollars some woods take 4-5 years to air dry most rose woods and imported woods cannot be Kiln dried . the tools in the picture close 20 thousand , with another 30 thousand not in the picture.
you are paying also for 12 years making flutes and the knowledge on how to make them ! I ship world wide and have sold some 2000 flutes .
My time is worth something and also worth a lot more then 15.00 per hour, 25 years a master carpenter.
Question I want ask when a doctor says you need a heart transplant, do you go get a plastic surgeon because they are cheaper to do the surgery ?
or do you bring a ford Pinto to Daytona 500 and expect to win
I am a American first store we use only American owned or made products , I work hard to get those 5 star ratings at times even thought of stopping selling to certain states but I seem be a Gluten for punishment
Yes I herd the giving back the "gift" . that is fine for someone working in a shed with Harbor Freight tools and 3.00 cans of spray lacquers from China
I use 100% all natural direct food safe finish 4 coats , to treat the flutes wood . Then 2-3 coats of non toxic UV semi or Gloss finish. Both are USA owned /manufactured finishes, at about 125-150 a gallon.
basically if your first questions are about price and not workmanship quality , then you should shop elsewhere . Over the years I tried every way to try give a flute for lowest prices to beat others . But you know what I am done I started cutting corners quality was going down . So I going /went back to making flutes that I would want play .
Doing individual sound bites takes a good 30-40 minutes I had a mixer great mic. but when I charge for the time into the flute people complained . I willing set up times for phone sound bites . when I get ahead or make a batch up I bought a video recording program and will cam the batch uploading to You tube with a link on the flute page .
I can do inlays in the note holes I can custom burn into flutes with a pro pyro set up all this cost extra
Okay all orders require a 30% set up charge with balance due before shipping If you cancel once the work is started a 15% non refundable restock fee will be charged .
I do not know how many customers have me start flutes and never here from them after a day or two. This stops you from going price shopping else where and sticking it to me and other customers who get the loss passed on .
This all may sound harsh But I am tired of people wanting something for nothing or not accepting responsibility for the actions that cost and effect others in a Negative way.
I use to have some 20-30 flutes posted but seems they always wanted it cheaper or in a different wood /key
I work rent a 1200sq ft warehouse for my wood shop , I enjoy nothing more then doing wood working , I just don't like listening to the crying game on prices
also about tuning Concert tuned that is a joke unless the finished flute sits for 2 weeks in a Humidity and temperature controlled room about 2 weeks to stabilize the wood cells from the manufacturing making. Mine are tuned after about a week in such room are tuned out for good clear voice with holes burned. as well as light pass down the sound tube with a torch .
hey feel free call talk about flutes how I make them for sound bites . best to email to set a time since here in Houston Texas summer heat can be brutal and I work at nights into mornings for my tools and myself from over heating
Also please do not compare my flutes to 1000 dollar CNC flutes mine are hand made to the best I can make since I no longer put price before quality
