Here are a couple of baby rattles that I’ve made. These are made from maple, and are about 6” long, and roughly 1-3/4” in diameter. Its best to keep these as large of a diametr as possible, I read where 1-5/8” was a min, but I could be wrong on that.
I started out with an octogon so I could lay out the small holes, then I cut the top off, bored a 1-3/8” hole 2” deep and put 6 small bells in each one and replacing the top and lined up the grain. 2 coats of bees wax finnish.
Lots of fun to make, and to watch people try and figure out how the bells got in.
Thanks for viewing
