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 ABS plastic into 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.

The ‘Alternative Tuesday’ segment is a twist and exciting addition to the Acutabove Woodworking channel that was previously dedicated to woodworking. We are excited - along with Ken - to show the benefits of working with plastics.
Plasti-Block™ materials offer rich and vibrant colors that will not chip or fade quickly, are resistant to water and many chemicals, and enable you to build projects that are not very practical with wood or other materials.
