A few whittling projects from 35 years ago when I was in college. We spend our summers at an off the grid cabin in northern Maine. Whittling is how I passed time in the evenings since I did not like to read.
Made the small, 2 ball rattle first. The tapered rattle was second followed by the chain. The chain is made from a 2×4 that was part of my parents house. I picked it up during a remodel project.
There is a third rattle with a ball in a box on each end and a braided handle in between. It was a gift to my sister in law.
All of this was done with a jack knife. I switched to one with a locking blade part way through after cutting finger pretty well.
