Note how the most recent F (late 1940s) is slightly longer than the previous ones

a blow up of part of the above, labels changing over time (resisting punning on 'generations' there)

Tell us something.: I have, at the age of 65, taken up the flute and I am hooked. I now have a number of wooden flutes and I am gradually getting better at playing. Irish music interests me in particular.

Thanks. I’m afraid that I made just the one for myself. It went through a number of manifestations before I got the balance and tuning right though!
If you want info on how it’s built then please ask .... no problem. It’s pretty straightforward.
Currently working on a low D.
