Another simple project to use yup some of those scraps, better than going to the burn pile. Going to give this to my 5 year old, any ideas on finishes ? something to keep the grain from coming up around the mouthpiece? thanks for looking.

It doesn’t matter what you finish it with, his mom will throw it away tomorrow :-)

Shellac if you want to finish it.

This looks like a great idea for my 10 year old grandson. Anything to drive grandma nuts….........................

I suggest thick varnish, so it can be washed from time to time – these things get a bit sticky. Cool idea. Did you use a plan? or make it up yourself

looked up wooden whistles on youtube. There are many different videos ranging from simple whistles like this one, to more difficult ones. thanks
