Herb, thanks.

The design is still evolving. I tried my hand at making a totem today. The results are something a third grader would do if you handed them a dull knife and chunk of wood.

So tomorrow heading to the cnc. This is the design I've come up with. I'll see how it cuts tomorrow.

Love the ability to quickly prototype a design and see if it will work. Super happy with this version. There is a bit of hand work since I did not carve the backside. carved at 3"x2" so pretty small and then cut on band saw.

The flute still needs a little bit of work to make it sound right but design is almost there I think.

Barb, thank you.

Every time I finish one, I find areas I can change and make more to my liking. The only problem is they are getting fancier and fancier and longer and longer to build. They don't play any better but they have more bling.

Today I am going to design a few more totems for my cnc.

I ran out of cedar so I am also going to have to process one of the slabs for lumber. Moisture content is surprisingly down to 13-11% already.

Quick update if anyone is interested. Started putting bling on my flutes.

My wife had some semi-precious stone cabochons that were perfect and I ordered some stained turkey feathers.

Also showing off the totems I've designed so far. I haven't carved them but they should work fine.

My wife also looked at the flute I made her and she said, "this is fine but I would much rather have one in low C." At which point, I put on my big boy pants and said, "Woman, you will take what I give you and like it...what color would you like?"

Low C flute is looking like a ~32 inch long flute with mouth piece. Off to get more lumber milled.
