Police Rattle

A couple days ago I made myself a police rattle. I made it because I thought it would be a cool thing to have. The police used rattles as an alarm before they had whistles. Police rattles make a very loud clacking noise. The rattles were also used in WWI as a gas warning. I find the rattle very fun to use and it was very interesting to make. It was a fairly easy project that took all of three hours to make.

This is the rattle I based mine on. 

Below is the rattle I made.

  1. I knew you were a tailor but not that you had such good woodworking skills. Are you thinking of selling these, as well as your wands? I can see a market for these for sure.
