A quick to make Whistle or two. Made out of cherry cut off, and a maple insert (just whatever I found at hand that would fit together).

I made this in a couple of hours with my daughter (including waiting for the glue to dry). Was a fun project.

Finished with PPP and beeswax as top coat.

Could blog the making-off if anyone is interested.

Thanks for stopping by.
Peace

Steve,

I was thinking about that. I also thought about making a detachable head like a flute/player… but ultimately wanted something simple and quick. I still have a few more I want to make and those are all on the list (as well as a train whistle with 4 chambers) ;) I will post as I get to these

Wonderful time with your daughter, that sounds just perfect.
They are really fine.
I learned as kid to cut these in willow tree by a friend of my grandfather and enjoyed it ever since.
Best thoughts to you and your daughter,
