A Pre-Tuned flute kit is a fully tuned and playable, square flute that needs to be shaped sanded and varnished. All of the six hole flute kits are produced in the same careful way as the Stellar Standard and Basic flutes.
Each kit includes:
One square unvarnished, western red cedar flute
One pre-shaped animal silhouette or an unshaped flute block of your choice
One leather strap to attach the block to the flute
An informational booklet with instructions on making, care and playing.
The square flute must be roughed out before sanding. The best way to do this without power tools is to use a small hand plane or a rasp. A plane is preferable. Once the flute is close to the shape you want it, it is then sanded starting with grit 60 and working up to 220. When the flute is completely sanded it must finished with oil or a wood finish.
Other optional things you may need or want to have are wood finish, beads, extra lace, feathers, etc.
