Stick Search

I want to do lummi sticks with my choirs. It’s the middle of the year, and practices are difficult. Something fun will be just the thing.

I would need 25 sets of sticks in order to be-stick all the kids. Off to Home Depot! I found some dowels that would do the trick, but they would be around sixty dollars, and they would need to be cut. I decided to go for it anyway.

I loaded fourteen four-foot dowels in a cart and found a guy who said he would cut them. I told him they were for a music class rhythm game. The guy said he wasn’t supposed to cut dowels on the table saw – customers are supposed to use the hand saw to cut them. But he said he was a musician, and was glad to do his part to help. 🙂

As I was checking out, the checker said: “Oh! These are purple-ended dowels?” (the thickness of the dowel is indicated by their color) “These are on sale,” she said. And then she took 70% off the price. Seventy percent! Amazing!

    Well, I’ve never heard of Lummi sticks before you? I was thinking about those wood pieces that do the SNAP (whip sound) in that Christmas song……can’t think of the name of it but can hum it? So, I was wrong, I looked it up. COOL!!! You must video your performance!!! AND what about a 70% discount!!! So GREAT!
