I have recently acquired a one of a kind machine dedicated to building one piece line bored flute blanks.

The advantages of a line bored one piece flute blank over the traditional two piece glued together blank are many including:

1. No glue joints

2. No glue squeeze-out

3. No break in the wood grain on the sides of the flute

4. No possibility of air leaks because of a failed glue joint

5. Less construction time

6. Less sanding time

7. More consistent bore size

8. No warping or twisting of blanks
