I have been trying to make a good whistle and I had a hard time I went on line and found a train whistle you know the kind with 4 whistles in one thats what got me on the right road to making a Whistle that works don’t ask me who was making train whistles I was all over looking sorry .
But you can make one I started with a 5”x1”x1” and 3/8 dowel To start .
Mark center on one end
drill a 3/8 hole 4inch. in the end .
Now because I will be carving it I go down 1-1/2 inch so I have room if not carving just go 1/2 inch. cut to just when you start to see the saw in the hole this is a stop cut.
Now carve a 45 up to the bottom of your cut
Now cut a piece of 3/8 dowel so it go’t from the end to your stop cut no more.
Now you got to cut off 1/3 on one side of that dowel down to 1/3 of it at the other end.
Now put a little glue on the dowel and put the big end of you dowel in ,”“Just to the stop cut.
Now blow on it and see if it works if not you my have to turn the dowel so it is flat with you 4/5 or you went in to far just go to the stop cut.
When you carve it reminder not to move the wood in front of the hole at the bottom of the 4/5
