« Part 6: Designing a Parametric Pencil Box with Sliding Lid in Fusion 360 Part 7 of More tools in the shop series Part 8: Japanese pull saw toy for my daughter »

I had sometime to crank out a simple pencil box (or a bird house) that houses a pigeon rattler toy for my friend’s new born daughter.

The model for the pencil box is based on my fusion 360 parametric design that I blogged about in my last blog entry. Box is made from scrap pine and baltic birch.

I made the pigeon rattler toy from a design based on a wooden toy sold by someone online (Do not remember the person’s name). There is a hole in the pigeon body that is covered by the circular wings. When the toy is shaked, it makes rattling sound. The wood for the pigeon body is made of maple and the wings made from walnut. I was able to find a piece of walnut that had yellow grain (may be sapwood not sure) in it.

Finished with sanding and water based poly. I see that if the poly is allowed to cure (for 30 days) it should become baby safe.
