I have not made that style but I’ve made PVC penny whistles. Once you get it the rest will be easy.

re: the dowel … the larger the windway the more breath it takes to blow the whistle and the louder it will be. Start with a small flat so the opening is maybe 2mm high then gradually increase it from there.

The notch does not need to be very deep, just enough so the ramp catches the rush of air.

The shorter the whistle, the higher pitched (shriller).
