Following the tutorial given by Mary Anne (Tutorial can be found here) I have made this wooden whistle. Please keep in mind that this is my first lathe project, as well as the fact that my workshop is not “up-to-date”... The lathe I turned this whistle on was my great-grandfathers. (All original except the belt and power cable, belt I replaced dated in the 1920’s).
I made the whistle from pine, more specifically I ripped a 2×4 from Home Depot down to 1”x1” (true measure). I started with a blank approx 6 1/2” long. The only major mistake I made was that I made the mouthpiece too short. I will be sure to leave more there on my next one.
