Bamboo Wind Chime

Wind chimes are widely regarded not only for their soothing sounds, but also because they are visually pleasing. And if you plan on buying them in a store, you'll find them rather pricey, too.

However, they don't have to be expensive. In this set of free woodworking plans, we walk you through building a bamboo wind chime. This is a surprisingly easy woodworking project, one that you can build with your kids. Matter of fact, a number of the pictures you'll see in the upcoming pages will be of my twelve-year-old son, C.J., working with me to build our prototype.

Frankly, I don't know if he had more fun than I did.

There are some tasks on some power tools that you'll likely want to perform, but a number of other tasks are safe enough that kids can handle them easily. It is a good opportunity to teach your children proper respect and use of your woodworking tools, and you'll have a very nice addition to your back yard to show for it.
