Toot, Toot, Tootorial #3: How to make a whistle on a router table

1512 days ago by Mary Anne | 38 comments »

Sorry about the delay in posting this tutorial of the series. I ran into some technical difficulties… which is another way of saying I sometimes have the attention span of a gnat and messed things up the first time around. Speaking of messing things up, I’ve injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for a few days. I am only on day two and already going crazy. All in all, it looks a good time for going on with this toot toot tootorial series. —...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #2: How to make a whistle on a lathe

1544 days ago by Mary Anne | 27 comments »

TOOT TOOT TOOTORIAL TWO This time, we’re going to turn a whistle on a lathe. I will be including some beginner level information since a few of the people who showed an interest in this project are novices. Besides, I think it is a great beginner project; it requires no parts or kits, just a chunk of wood, your lathe, your tools, and you. Please use all safety precautions you have available! I can’t think of any good stories to start with this time, so let’s get right toot it. Th...

Make a whistle with your pocket knife and fresh wood.

734 days ago by mafe | 26 comments »

Make a whistle with your pocket knife and fresh wood.wonderful time with my fiancées son Karl. Making a whistle with a pocket knife is a wonderful way to share a good time with kids, it gives a chance to learn, talk and just enjoy life in the quiet pace, away from the modern running. Perhaps a chance to give a son, stepson or a grandchild his or hers first knife.Hazel, willow, ash or rowan will do the job; the important is that the bark will separate from the wood easy.In Denmark willow is...

All of my sawing could easily be accomplished with a hand saw. To get started, here is a PDF with the measurements I used

Whistle Me This #1: Basic Whistle

755 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

I’ve decided to start a new series about whistles after my first attempt which was really fun and was posted here and about which this blog is about: I wanted to make a whistle for quite some time now, but just never gotten to it. I also knew I would like to involve my daughter in the making of… which worked out great! Everything used (material wise) for this project was from the cutoff bin (ok, I don’t have an actual bin – it’s just pieces that were left o...

Mary Anne's Whistle - handtool version #1: How to with handtools!

1510 days ago by rwyoung | 6 comments »

OK, so Mary Anne posted some blog entries on making whistles. I decided to make one using only hand tools. Here's a link back to Mary Anne's post. So, we start with some rough lumber. In this case a piece of wacky cherry. The board has lots of pitch inclusions, crazy grain and cupped something awful. But it will be fine for a whistle. By the way, no rulers were harmed (or used) in the making of this project. All measuring done by the Mark-I eyeball. 1) Cross cut a blank. Eye...
