Make a homemade metal and pvc pipe xylophone

Created as a 2nd Grade project for making a homemade instrument, this pvc pipe xylophone has been online since October, 2006, and is a great metal and pvc pipe how to for kids, with a bit of parental assistance.

Related watching, a slightly easier version of the same thing: Lullatone’s paper roll xylophone.
