Our presidents challenge this month for one of the turning clubs that I belong to was to turn either a yo-yo, baby rattle, or kaleidoscope. I chose to do the Baby Rattle as I wasn't about to go out and buy either a Yo-yo or kaleidoscope kit at the last minute (the meeting is tomorrow night) so I turned this last night.
I had remembered one that David D had turned a short while back so without looking up his post again I simply went about turning this piece, for the rattle sound I put in 4 popcorn kernels, this amount seemed to give the right effect. The finish is wipe on poly that has yet to be buffed.
The pen is there just as a size comparison. C & C Welcome
