Wind Chime

This project was constructed with left-over materials: cedar cut-offs and electrical conduit.  The cedar piece was actually glued up from smaller sections, using waterproof glue.  A paint can was used as a circle template.

The chimes are made of various lengths of 1/2″ and 1″ electrical conduit; the pieces are random and not measured.  A hole was drilled to run the string through, but a short piece of nylon tube was used to protect the string from getting cut by the conduit.

The striker was originally made from cedar, but it was not hard enough to get a good sound from the pipes, so instead a piece of Corian was used.

The wind catcher is made from black nylon.  It’s large enough to catch a small breeze and also acts as a pendulum.
