Thread: Grandpa's and aunt's presents for the newborn twins...

  1. #1

    Grandpa's and aunt's presents for the newborn twins...

    Well...the youngest son and DIL asked me to turn rattles for their newborn twins.

    The one on the left I turned a couple of weeks ago. The one on the right I turned this evening. My oldest son's wife crocheted the sandals and shoes for the newborns.

    Maple....frictioned BLO and frictioned dewaxed shellac.

    Wow Ken, those are really great, I sure hope you put your name or mark on them somewhere, dated as well.

    Outstanding!

    Actually Larry...they are both girls but I want them to grow up to be women who aren't to be taken lightly.


    The barbell shape I chose for the 2nd rattle over the original design to reduce the choke hazard possibility.

    Look great Ken!
    Hope the finish you used is food safe for chewing on.
