I'm finally worthy of posting in this forum

My first project on my new lathe. Simple design but I've been thinking about it for several months before my lathe arrived. It's a baby rattle for some friends of ours. Red oak, cherry, and poplar.

It's funny... I picked this design because I know how much babies like to use objects as clubs, so figured I didn't want a heavy wood rattle at the end of a handle. I gave this to my one-year-old daughter to test it out and the first thing she did was use it to hit the dog on the head.

What kind of finish is on there. Babies like to put things in their mouth.

When it's rustic......it's rustic

Very nice.......poor puppy.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice job SW.
I think I saw an article in one of the magazines on making one of those last year. Good idea. I'm sure that dog will know what it is. EVery time it hears that rattle, you'll be yelling, "Shane come back, Shane......" Either that or get the dog a hardhat.
