This is my entry for the Nothing New But The Glue Challenge.
I gathered up some scrap last night, did some random gluing and spent a pleasant couple of hours in the shop today making whistles. Four were turned on the lathe, and the other two were made on the router table. One is a two-note “train” whistle. Scrap woods used are maple, walnut, hickory, lyptus, oak, and sapele.
That’s Hayley resisting temptation in the last picture. :)
Whistles are a fun and easy project. They are a great project for unstructured exercising of your imagination. They are universally popular with youngsters, and I usually keep a few around for children I like—and parents I don’t like.
