What did you make today?

Maybe it was a sandwich, maybe something else.

Today I made a whistle. My son found instruction in a book he had on how to make a whistle from a tree branch. So we tried it out. A willow tree is apparently the best, but a tulip poplar will work, and that's what we have. We messed the first one up, but the second one works! We cut the branch sections before lunch. Soaked them in a bucket while we had lunch, and then spent about 20 minutes after lunch making them.

Any chance we could get a sound file?

very cool!

Lemme see what I can do. It's kind of quiet. If you try to blow too hard, it doesn't work. I think if we play around with various dimensions and stuff, we could make a really sweet sounding one.

Hopefully this will work. Don't know if Youtube has the video file fully processed yet.

If it's not embedded, this is the file name.

I'm in the (ongoing) process of making and installing base and case moldings. This weekend I'm working on the big bathroom, which is divided into an upper and lower area. I hope to finish the upper area today, but the house is not cooperating.

The moldings are hickory, to match the floors that we put in last summer, 3 inch case and 4 inch base.

I'm also making a presentation for the Department of Homeland Security.

I made a meatloaf. Well, it's in the oven.

I tried putting some pickles in it this time, at a friend's suggestion. I'll have to see how it is.

The whistle is amazing glatt.

Shawnee :greenface

I might have to put you on ignore just so I don't accidentally read about the pickles in your meatloaf again. :greenface:greenface:greenface

Just as long as somebody else isn't putting their pickle in your meatloaf! :eek:

I made a ceramic napkin box. Well finished it anyway. I rolled and cut the pieces last week.

I'm frightened. I won't be eating it until later, though. We'll see.

I made cheeseburgers and hotdogs on the grille, made the dishes go into the dishwasher and made the pots and pans clean by hand, made the downstairs bathroom clean, and made Selene buy me a new chainsaw and a new set of lopping shears.
