Whistle and Rings

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Whistle and RingsWe were given a piece of hollow African Blackwood, at our wood turning guild , and a challenge for next month to see what we could make out of it. It was a little over 1” in diameter and about 9” long.
I drilled it out to 5/8 and glued in a dowel and made a whistle out of it for my great granddaughter. I used a flat piece of African Blackwood for the cap and piece of cherry for the mouthpiece. It works but the three notes are not as good as they should be. I need to learn more about whistle making.The whistle is 6 1/2” long and the 3 1/4” holes are 3 1/2”, 4 1/2” and 5 1/2” deep.
It is finished with EEE and ShellawaxI had a piece left over so I turned 6 rings of various sizes from it. They are also finished with EEE and Shellawax.Cheers, Jim
