Whistle with pocket knife and fresh wood.
wonderful time with my fiancées son Karl.
My daughter Mathilde and I have made these over the years in the blog these pictures come from I will make one with my fiancées son Karl and he will carve a little also http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/31205
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 the most common used traditionally.
2. First cuts.
3. Making the tone.
4. The secret.
5. Karl testing and it works.
6. This is what it is all about.
Hope this can inspire others to spend some wonderful time with someone you love.
