I have made a few of these over the past couple of years. They make great gifts for kids in the family. The last 2 (pictured together) were made for a set of twins out of Maple (nice figure and it was reclaimed from a house my uncle was re-doing). Easy but fun project.

I bet these become favorite toys! Do you make the strike bars or buy them?

Thanks for sharing.

Steve, the strike bars come from Rockler (makes this so much easier)
