Most of the wind chimes we’ve seen over the years are small “tinkey” sounding chimes. One year we put together a wind chime from lake trash. Stuff we found out on or down in the lake.

The sound chamber is a 72 cubic foot galvanized scuba tank. The clapper is a old stove damper and the prop was found in about 30’ of water, laying by it’s self , on a rock ledge. I can’t remember just where the boat fenders were found, they seem to wash up just about anywhere.

Here is a look.
