Grandchildren things

I am going to visit Australia where I have two grandchildren.  So I have been busy.

For the 9month old I have made a rattle

I made two.  Here they are still drying in clamps.

Here they are ready for oiling.

One freshly oiled rattle with one freshly oiled "giant weta".

I start my journey on Saturday so they will be dry enough for travel by then.

For those interested in woods, the body of the weta is Macrocarpa, the wheels and base-legs are pine and the feelers Mahogany.  The outer leg parts are not wood they are composites of bamboo.

The rattle has a body of gum [Eucalyptus] and rattles of plane, sycamore and mahogany.  The central pin is bamboo.  The rattles are cut-offs from pipes that I have recently made.

Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
