In fact, nobody has met these individuals...yet.....
My youngest son and wife are expecting twins in the next 8 weeks. They asked me to turn a couple rattles for the twins. So here's my first atttempt. I have enough wood for 7 more attempts. I have already come up with some changes for revision 2.
While I have a lot of cherry and apricot, I didn't want to use any fruit wood that might have had pesticides sprayed on it. So....I bought some kiln dried maple figuring it was either the least probable to have had pesticides used on it and if not..I'm ignorant and claim my innocense due to that.
I had some pretty severe dental work done Thursday morning and have been under the weather or at least keeping a low profile until this afternoon.
Here it is..maple with a light frictioned BLO followed by dewaxed shellac finish.
I hope you like it little ones.......Grandpa's first gift......
