    great instruction

    people are going to hate me nowthat i can make whistles out of inaminat objects

    Captain, You are THE MAN! This works brilliantly. I made one and it is SO LOUD! I have now also experimented with a totally plastic one and although it is not as loud as the tin one, it does definitely whistle. My plastic one is made from some clear plastic from a tub and two milk bottle lids.

    Sweet! I'm glad it worked for you

    Izzes are the best.

    i agree splenda is bad x(

    This would be a lot better if you included a template for the shape you cut out of the can.

    I did its in the intro

    Oops, my bad!

    Hah! This is great! What a fun idea. There are lots of things that are made out of and by the simplest things, and it only takes the incentive to turn that into something you can make unique. I'm definitely going to try this! Then, I think I'll work on a tin can penny-whistle. These would make great nerd-gifts. :D

    I may just show how I made a wooden whistle.

    Wow, I wouldn't have though this possible before today. L

    I agree with Lemonie. We dont drink much beer in our house so I will have to ask my student pals to save bottle tops for me. Or perhaps try boring old plastic ones. Is the distance between the edge and the blowing bit critical?
