My version of the referee whistle.
Hello everyone!
Looking WWMM the page, and also that of woodworking for enginers.
Not much merit. Only cedar wood and try several times to get the sound.
Thanks for watching, greetings to all and good start of 2014.

What a great idea.
Did you put a little ball in it before you glued it together?

After watching this video, I thought this would make a great gift for one of my employees who refs both basketball, hs football, and college football.

How hard was it to get a sound? Does it sound right?

Nice build – it looks great!

I’ve made one of Steve’s whistles as well, and I have to say the tough part is getting that ear-splitting sound. I think I figured out that the piece you fit in at the last moment needs to narrow on it’s way down the chamber and be just about level with the piece it forms a gap with.

Glue the rest of the whistle together and leave off the thin piece on the top. Then you can play with the part for a while until you get it nice and loud. Mark this and glue it. Then you can sand everything smooth.

Hope this helps!

Nice one, I’d like to make some of these but don’t have a scroll saw yet.

juststeveb we use the day/month/year format here (Argentina), so the date is January 6th.

I hate date formats are not standarized globally, you can never be sure of the date the first 12 days of each month… :/

Thank you all for the comments.
Not explain more , because I thought everyone had seen the video of WWMM . From there remove the idea.
It is a simple project to do. And I think that interesting gift .
SPalm : No , I had a ball , to put inside. So use a 6mm dowel and cut two small pieces to place inside. Works perfectly with one, or one could be long (you have to avoid getting stuck only). Anything that rotate and alter reach the air outlet serves need not be perfect .
Gianni : I think that the explanation of KnotCurser , this perfect . It’s simple, just you have to find the point of sound before hitting the last top. In addition, the queue allows you to put the sticker and have enough time to move the piece , before this dry. Ahi you want to give more or less space for sound. I think to make it more serious or acute through the diameter of the hole where the ball is going , not the angle .
Gepatino : jig saw is not necessary! No appearance is important , but you need a hole cut through it, and you cut the part that goes on air. I think it can be any shape externally (although not too wordy ) . I have to try that too.
Thank you very much for the comments friends ! Soon.
