I’m a euphonium/baritone player of a local wind band. For a given piece of music a slide whistle is needed. Therefor I have made one. When I was busy with drilling and sanding I decided to also make a train whistle. Always good to have these on hand.
The slide whistle is made from oak. The train whistle from padouk and ash.

Thanks for watching.

Video about a other woodworker that have turned a train whistle

When you can make a train whistle you can also make a slide whistle,

Yes, I played the Sax. I was just being a smartass :-)
It is quite different than what you play…
