Giant Musical Wind Chime
Randy Kurtz converted an old glider frame into a giant “musical wind chime” that stands 9 ft. tall. It’s complete with sixteen 2-in. dia. aluminum pipes that range from 23 to 63 in. long and make different tones.

    The pipes hang from a cable at the top of the glider frame and gradually get longer toward the middle. Four metal pendulums, shaped like musical instruments, strike the pipes. Sixteen metal notes mount on a large music staff at the top of the frame and represent the hymn “What a friend we have in Jesus”.

    “When the pipes chime, it’s music to our ears,” says Randy. “The pipes make a low bass sound that’s unique.”

    The pendulums are shaped like an accordion, trumpet, drum set, and saxophone. The glider frame is painted white and the notes and pendulums are painted black.
