This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Roundwood Working.

Whistles are such simple things to make, but they’ve largely become a lost art. This project is one where you’ll be working not just with the wood, but the bark as well. That’s something so incredibly rare in modern woodworking, but bark has many amazing uses in projects if you understand how to apply it. This simple whistle will get you started in understanding how make use of the innate nature of bark and wood.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Separate the bark from the wood in a single piece.
Use the wood and bark to create a whistle.
Explain the choice of wood and what properties led you to select it.
Make use of manual hand tools only.

To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Explain what wood you chose and the properties that lent itself to the project
- Show the wood and tools you will use
- Show the wood and tube of bark after they have been separated
- Show the finished whistle.
- Give a video or short audio file of the whistle in use.
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
