[Legebla en Esperanto]

Not sure what these should be called. I had some parts from an old tambourine and wanted to re-purpose them in some way. So I took a piece of probably pine and ripped a strip off both sides. Then I kerfed out notches for the little cymbals and glued pieces of the the sides back on. After that I drilled holes through the piece to accept a barbecue skewer all the way through. This skewer is what holds the cymbals. As I recall, one reason the old tambourine was jettisoned is that the cymbals were held in by nails which kept working themselves out.

You lost me at ‘flares’.

Been meaning to make a football rattle. I just keep forgetting.

I like the strange and still nice looking things!
NICE.
Fun project; I use skewers all the time as pegs for some assemblies where I do not want metal.

Thanks. I presented them to my wife this morning and she loves them. She says her students feel privileged when they get one of the instruments I’ve made.

There is currently a few excited fans that take flares to the game, due to associated dangers and the club itself getting fined, they have asked fans not to bring them or let them off in the grandstand!

An extract for you:-
Football Federation Australia and the Western Sydney Wanderers are investigating the series of flares that were lit during Wednesday night’s pre-season match in Canberra, threatening to track down culprits and issue five-year bans.

Capital Football has also said it will not tolerate antisocial behaviour as it prepares to host another A-League team, the Newcastle Jets – led by former English star Emile Heskey – at McKellar Park on Wednesday night.

Keep up the good work … glad to hear your wife was impressed with your work

-- Regards Robert

I guess the few games I’ve attended to see my daughter in the marching band have been tame. Biggest problem I’ve been aware of is air horns being played while the band is on the field.
