Wooden Whistle

Introduction: Wooden Whistle

How to make a whistle out of a 3/4 inch wooden dowel and a 3/8 inch wooden dowel.

Step 1: Cutting the Whistle to Length

First cut your 3/4 inch dowel to the length that you want.

Step 2: Drill a Hole

Drill a hole in one end about 1 1/2 deep.

Step 3: Cut the Air Exit Hole

Now cut the line a little less that half way down the top of the 3/4 inch dowel

Step 4: Cut the Second Part of the Air Exit Hole

Now cut a slit at a angle.

Step 5: Cutting the Plug

Now cut the 3/8 inch dowel about 2 inches long.

Step 6: File the Plug

Now file the 3/8 inch dowel a little less that half way down. Then insert the plug into the drilled hole and turn and twist the plug until you get a good whistle noise to come out. Then glue it in with some wood glue and cut the access off with a saw.

    I totally made this in under 20 minutes using a stick from a hiking trip a few months ago. I love the look. Thanks!
