The last rattle with the marble in it was a little too big for our great granddaughter’s little hand so I made this one a little smaller. It is made from 2 flat pieces of cherry with a groove bored in each side and glued together with few BB’s inside. It is 4” in diameter and the ring is 1/2” diameter with a 1/4” hole n the center.

It is buffed and waxed with Carnuba wax

cheers, Jim

Jim that’s a great looking toy! Wondering about construction… Do you cut the groove first, glue up pieces, and then turn it?

So Cute Jim.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Hey, thank you all for the nice comments. I could not help showing off pretty blue eyes !!

Hi Mike, that is just how I did it. I started with two round 5/8” pieces with a 3/16 hole through them and then turned a shallow tenon on each one. I chucked each one up and turned a 1/4” wide groove .125” deep. Then I glued the surfaces, installed the BB’s and aligned them on the lathe and glued them together with the tailstock pushing them together. I turned the assembly to .500 thick centered on the seam and then the OD to 4” . I cut out the center of the outer one and turned the ID to 3” and then rounded 3 of the edges in that setup. To get the last radius I had to turn it in my big adjustable chuck…the name escapes me for now!

Cheers, Jim

Very good, Jim!

How did you make it?
Start off with a square piece, turn it into a circle, cut the circle in half, route the groove into both pieces, insert marble, glue back together, and turn to get finished piece?

Sure is nice!

Your Great Grandchild is pretty too…

I was just made another Great Grandfather to new girl!!

More fun!
