Making wind chimes is a really easy weekend project. If you decide to take the time to make a set, spend a little time making them sound pleasant. Check out Lee Hite’s web site, “An Engineering Approach to Wind Chime Design”. It contains everything—and I mean everything—you’ll need to know about chimes.
