Welcome to CherryCows
Flutes inspired in the Style of
Native American Flutes
Before I get started telling you about this website, let me tell you a little something about me. I am married to a beautiful woman and have a son and two daughters. I have lived in the deserts and mountains of Arizona for almost 60 years. Flute making is not my profession. It is my hobby, my passion, my therapy, my pride, and much, much more. If you make just one flute, you will see what I mean.
The purpose of this website is to introduce you to the ki-e-ta Flute Making Manual. Click on the Flute Making Manual button to the left. Then take a look at the Testimonials page about the ki-e-ta Flute Making Manual. If you have never made a flute before, this is the best instruction you will ever find. If you have made flutes before, I guarantee you will find several useful tips and ideas that you have not used before.
For those of you who are more advanced in your Flute Making....take a look at the Shop Booklet.
I also have recently added another Flute Making book called the Native Yucca-Stalk Flute Making Manual. You have never seen Flutes made like this before!
And for building a really fun project, take a look at the detailed instructions on how to build a bench that is quite useful when using your SpokeShave. It is called the DC Spokeshave Mule.
And....after two very long years, I have finally finished my Video Training series on "How To Play The Native Flute In 6 Weeks".
On occasion, I will have some Flutes from my private collection available for purchase. All of these flutes were made by following the simple to use instructions in the ki-e-ta Flute Making Manual. Every flute has it's own identity and no two flutes are ever alike. I do not mass produce flutes and each one has over 30 hours of handcrafted detail put into it. If you need more information on my flutes, or would like to see more photos of them, please contact me.
If you have questions.....please contact me and I'll do my best to answer them.
I would appricate hearing from you.
Thank you for stopping by.
