Tell us about yourself!
I love this idea. Been wanting to make (or at least assemble) my own knives for ages. This is a great way to make them even more unique!Great project, but the video needs some work. I had to turn the sound off because the music was way too loud over your voice. Also the low contrast of the captions (grey on teal) makes them nearly unreadable. Go with a dark color and a light color together instead. :)

I wonder if painting the insides of the holes a flat black would make it harder to see how deep each hole is.
I believe that's what the bead placed inside this version of the whistle is for. :)

Great 'ible! I'll be making one of these to use in my pottery studio as well as my tool shop!
Thank you for this, MotherEarthMark. I have been known to go camping with several hundred of my closest friends at sites from county fairgrounds to ranchers' sheep fields. We spend anywhere from three days to two weeks living in tents and cooking on fires.Many, if not most, of these tents are medieval pavilions that weigh 100 pounds or more just to move the materials from place to place. Our fires are built in fire pits constructed of steel and raised off the ground to protect our hosts' property. By the time you pack and haul that, a Dutch oven is nothing.Not all camping involves a five mile trek through the wilderness. That doesn't mean it's not camping.
I have a red oak "table top" in my traveling altar that I made 20+ years ago. I finished it by literally lighting a white candle and dripping the wax over it, then melting it into the grain of the wood with a heat gun and wiping the excess off. It's not super shiny, but it is a soft sheen and smooth surface, and it still looks good after all these years.
I boil my eggs and they're never overcooked. The trick is to bring them to the boil, then cover them and turn off the heat. Leave them sit in the boiling hot water for at least 10 minutes, but they can stay in there until the water has cooled enough to handle and they'll be perfect.I do this same thing with boiled white rice, leaving it in the pot at least 20 minutes.
