This is a wind chime made from a Bailey’s Irish Cream bottle that I cut the bottom off on a tile saw. I made the top inner shaft and the wind catcher out of Osage Orange and the clapper is made from pecan wood. The wood parts are finished with clear lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Then make a chime out of that one… and have another bottle… etc., etc…

And soon you’ll have an orchestra!

Nice Jim. Sunday breakfast just wouldn’t be the same without a splash of B in the coffee. Seeing that it gets diluted down, I end up buying the cheap imitation more often than brand name though. Those cheap azz bottles probably would not be as musically inclined though.

My wife has a recipe for home made B, she calls it the recipe. Way better, but shes a hag, and won’t make it any old time, instead she only does for Christmas, and bigger holidaze. No bottle for that stuff though, it never lasts long enough for a bottle. We just pour it out of the blender jug.

Great project Jim.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
