    weekend project

    what do you get when you mix a 20" crash and some scrap mahogany?

    a wind chime of course

    Love it man - that cymbol should tarnish to a really nice dark color too after a few rain showers.

    I've been thinking of making one from wood blocks, but got a death threat from somewhere in the greater Chicago metro area.

    Looks good, Shawn.

    Is it a wind chime or a "call me anything but late to dinner" gong? Looks very nice. Must be serial number 13 00001 and a pre-factory model too.
    My homeowners association would probably send me a warning letter if I put one of those up.

    Let that be a lesson to all of you!

    Cool work Shawn.

    That is actually very cool. But it pains me that you had to sacrifice one musical instrument to make another

    Way cool! I'd hang that from my pergola in a heartbeat! And I HATE wind chimes!

    Looks cool!

    A neighbour nearby has some wind chimes. I quite like them but it drives my girlfriend nuts.

    Thanks guys! It sounds nice, but not too loud. The wind only blows the striker a few inches away so it doesn't sound like Keith Moon is sitting on m front porch.
