How To Make An Elder Wood Whistle ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

With Christmas coming up why not make a few of your presents instead of buying them! Over the next couple of weeks we will be uploading a series of easy DIY films to give you some ideas!

We revisit Dave Watson as she shows us how to make your very own whistle using elder wood. Elder Wood is the perfect wood for this job due to its very soft pith that can be easily removed to create a hollow tube. What sounds will your whistle make?

Why not barleycorns, or palms?

Some stories say you should ask permission from the elder before you cut it. Excellent tutorial!

Make a bamboo flute like David carrodine used in kill bill, I’ve looked online and can’t find a video showing a long one.
