Again, I'm using up wood scraps. This time for a play xylophone. And...the best part? It actually works!
This idea was suggested to me last weekend...and I went with it. All I did was select pieces in ascending order. I nailed equally spaced finishing nails on two boards shaped like a V. I then secured the ends to a solid piece of wood. A narrow piece of felt was placed before I added the parts that make music. They're removable, so one can change them up for different tunes. The mallets were saved from my husband's childhood.
