Sweet Potato Kazoo 02

This one is carved from a white sweet potato.
It is about 5 inches long.

It are carved, like the others, from a fresh sweet potato, forming the faces and hollowing out the inside and making holes for the mouth- piece, the diaphragm, and air exit hole at the same time.  When they dry they shrink about 1/3 in each direction, accenting the cuts and becoming hard and woodlike.

This one has not been finished yet.  I was considering using a natural varnish for some, but I think I'll use that on the red ones.  The whites do not have the nice scent of the reds when dry.
