How to make a wooden whistle from two tree branches

Cut the barkA simple and interesting wooden whistle can be made from two round blanks, for example, from a handle for a shovel or a tree branch. To work, you will need a drill, two pieces of twig and a sharp knife. One of the mandatory conditions for making a whistle is that the wood must be dry. Otherwise, when drilling a hole, it will turn out to be fleecy, and it will not make sounds.

Take a section of a thick branch and drill a hole in it from the end. Then, at the end with the hole, you need to remove the bark on half the circumference of the branch.
