Some news from the shop
published Thursday, 09/07/2015
I just put flutes #80 + #81 in the mail. Kind of surreal ... I only started doing this a bit more than five years ago - and now there are more than 80 of my flutes around worldwide, each of them having the potential to be on the planet much longer than I ever will. Feels good. :)
I will finish one more flute today, bearing the number 82. Then the workshop will close for two weeks, as I'm having a week off in Ireland (anyone coming to Tubbercurry?), and a CNC milling machine will move into the shop, making a lot of things possible and others much easier. Plus, those things are so damn cool!
I decided to offer olive wood as a regular timber option for my flutes. I found a good a reliable supplier in Hamburg, who offers very well seasoned wood at reasonable prices.
I'm also now offering budget flutes in all kinds of wood - you're free to decide what you want for your budget flute.
The jubilee flute no. 50 is going to be finished soon, too - a one-off instrument made from Bocote, a very decorative and light brazilian timber. I know that no. 50 is 31 flutes behind my current serial no., but the flute parts sat in the cupboard to season for a long time, and now I feel that they're ready. I will post photos very soon. The flute is still available, to be finished in late July/early August. Contact me for details.
Welcome to my new website!

After three years time has come for a new and tidy look for my website. You still find all information about my flutes, myself, bands, CDs and dates.
From now on I'll regularly put up new content, photos and news from the workshop.
Thanks for your visit, and have fun browsing this site!
