Step 1: Basic Shaping
For the purpose of this lesson I will be using a carrot but you can use whatever you want.
There are two main components to making this whistle:
- the mouth piece
- the finger holes
First of all top and tail the carrot, removing about an inch from the pointy end. Then take the drill bit and with fingers carve a uniform hole starting from the blunt end and ending just before the pointy end forming a cavity. Now shape the mouth piece (pointy end) to fit your mouth.
Step 2: Final Touches
- cut a notch and diagonal (above image) about half an inch from the mouth piece half way through the drilled hole.
- carve a small piece of off cut to fill half of the chamber from the mouth piece to the notch.
- use a smaller drill bit to drill smaller finger holes.
- build as many as you can and start an orchestra with your friends!
Step 3: The Edible Part!
When your finished with your instruments why not make a creamy roast vegetable soup? Or how about some carrot sticks? Your imagination really is your limit!
