   Eucalyptus trees were used traditionally by the Aboriginal Australians for the making of their didgeridoos.  And they can also make wonderful branch flutes, as in this beautiful Lemon Eucalyptus (Corymbia citriodora) in Gm. After boring the branch out green and placing it in the kiln for a few weeks till bone dry, the bark was easily removed, exposing the natural suface of the wood just underneath. Measuring 21 1/4" in length, she is clearly and resonantly voiced to a mid-range Gm pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, playing two upper register notes.  Crushed amber has been inlaid into the branchlets. Deer lacing with  amber and hornbone beads secures the bird to its nest.  To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber.  The branch for this flute was gathered with love and respect from a Lemon Eucalyptus tree that had been cut down for a development--living on now through this one of a kind, beautiful branch flute.
