How to make Pressed Penny Wind Chimes

Hulbert, OK(Zone 7a)

Hi there!

Years ago, I posted something about penny wind chimes on Dave's Garden, but when I recently visited the old post, I realized how bad the image was, and instructions were lacking, to say the least.

I finally got around to making a new tutorial, complete with a video. I hope you will take a look, and if you happen to make a set of chimes, please share the news with us. :-)

To hear the sound of copper pennies in a wind chime:

This project looks (and sounds) really cool. Too bad there aren't any more pennies here in Canada. Might try making these in the future if I'm able to get some pennies.

Cool,Wovie, nice to hear from you or somebody, anybody, all forum participations have dropped from a posted total of 2000 to 900, I miss the old system & the people, I used to check TtoT twice a day, now once a month, maybe, I'm glad I checked today. So nice to hear from you. >>>>>>John

Love this idea. Did anyone make it?
Flattening pennies sounds complicated. Could you just hammer them flat? or cut from sheets of copper?
Admit I haven't read all the instructions yet.
Love an update.

Delightful! But how do you elongate your coins?
A friend of mine does it on his job on occasion, but he
does it by driving a train ( NYC subway) over the coins.

Maybe we can get things going again. My last project, 2 kitchen chairs & some old fencing boards blown down by hurricane Irma a couple of years ago.

Are those drawers you build into the bottom? I like the color you chose for the frame/chairs.
