Very nice Kurban! Does the baby rattle rattle?

The white oak drumsticks make sense. I tried using them for my temple blocks, but they weren't quite the sound I was looking for.

What kind of finish did you put on the baby rattle?

Oh, and how thick are the guitar picks? They look like they would be too thick to get the right sound.

I put vegetable oil on the baby rattle. These were the first of 20 pics my friend wanted they ended up at about 1/32 or so. Don't have the finished picture. Some were too thin and some too thick but there were about ten that were just right for the blues style he plays.

Nice job on all the projects. They all look great.
You might want to be careful using vegetable oil as a wood finish though. It can, and will, go rancid. A mineral and wax finish is more durable, non-toxic and wont go rancid.
Just trying to help. Fantastic work.

A light sanding, starting at 120 grit and working up to 400 grit should remove all the vegetable oil. You can then seal it correctly. I would seem a shame to scrap a nice looking rattle like that.

And I third what Kenbo is saying. It's still worth saving.

I think I need to try to make guitar picks, just to see if they suit me. I don't use a pick a whole lot, but sometimes.....
