Good news everyone!

This week’s Alternative Tuesday segment from the Acutabove Woodworking channel features a project to machine a Canadian-themed kazoo! Ken turned some of our red and white ABS blocks into something awesome!

What’s a Kazoo I hear you ask?

A kazoo is a musical instrument that requires the operator to hum, not blow. By humming, a "buzzing" sound is created thanks to internal vibrations - causing a rather unique sound. While the exact origins of this instrument are not certain, it is rumored to have originated in the USA in 1840.

In this short video, Ken uses a lathe and scroll saw to shape a fully functional kazoo with a demonstration at the end. If you love experimenting with making new things, this is the perfect hobby project to whet your appetite.

We all had them back in the sixties , round ones , long ones like yours , and we made our own using a hair comb and wax paper by just humming along the combs teeth we could vari the sounds. Pocket combs of course. All good Sunday school kids dressed in suits and decked out. Pocket knife Barlow, coins, hop toads to chase the girls away. Handkerchief and even picture wallets . Kazoos in the pockets too.
