Looks good! I’ve always thought these were cool. We had a woodworker here at the Hostfest several years ago that made rattles and Christmas trees with the loose rings.

A friend of mine just had a baby last night and I thought this wood be a great gift for her. Although I used cedar and the rings seem very delicate so I think I will tell them it is probably more of a display piece.

Hi Smiley. I turned my first one about 1980. I think it was out of maple. The cool thing about it was that the grandfather who I presented it too for his new grand daughter told me that she cut her teeth on it and that it worked so good they saved it for her brother when he came along. It is fun to make things like this for gifts. I always meant to turn one out of mesquite but never got around to it. If I ever find a lathe on Craigs list in Austin or SAT, I will try again.
