Default everyone is welcome to chime in

If your stumped what to get grams auntie or wife these wind chimes make classy little gifts. Who doesn't like a wind chime? Take note if you got yourself into a little trouble over the weekend and want back in good graces or some fresh baked cookies

These tones on this design How to Make Wind Chimes in 5 Easy Steps sound nice. Its a cinch to build with an arm full of stuff.

Before wasting copper would cutting its lower pipe sides to a 45 will it dramatically de tune to cause it to sound bad?

Along with a patina and minor engraving on copper should bring looks up a level. maybe a steel chain and colored let glass insert.

This might be the wrong place, feel free to shift it around then.

I have fond memories of the sound our old neighbors wind chimes made when being hit by slugs from my air rifle.

I am a big fan. I have a quite few, made from different materials. I think my favourite is the one made from sugar cane. Mind you, the neighbours find it a bit weird when they see me out there chewing on the things.

Anyone who doesn't like wind chimes has deep rooted problems. Almost the same as a guy who finds himself on the balcony chewing on them.

I think I'd go out and buy a shotgun if my neighbours put up a set of chimes. Blam! .... that's better.

I certainly know some people who'd intentionally buy chimes now just to mess with you.

Anyone here who can tolerate weeks on end of that racket has probably already taken root or maybe even been planted. Wind chimes are not best suited to our weather!
