For years Brazilian Rosewood has been hailed for its acoustic qualities. This has caused it to be listed on the endangered list. In Brazil the wood has been protected since 1967. It has not been allowed to be imported into the United States since 1992. This particular piece of burl came from the Dale Nish Hoard that is so famous. Dale has collected wood for over 50 years. This last summer Dale past, and went to the great workshop in the sky. Though we miss him dearly, we are very grateful for the wood he collected and his son is now selling through his company Wood Turners Catalog.

Talking with Dale’s one Darryl, he told me that every time Dale should him his wood collection, he would pull out this Brazilian Rosewood Burl and say, “Daryl, this Burl is something special. You need to make sure that it does not just get cut up for making pens or salt shakers.” I am so pleased to have the opportunity to make flutes from this wood. Thank you Dale and Darryl. This wood is irreplaceable.

It is not just the visual beauty of the wood that makes the wood so valuable. It is the sound that the wood makes.

The wood creates a flute that has all the warmth and fullness of a soft flute. Yet it has all the projection and sound precision expect from a hard denser than water wood. The wood has excellent percussive qualities. When percussively attacked there is a beautiful echo sustain.

These flutes start at $2500. The price goes up depending on the inlays, totem, and art work.
