Here goes my first instructable... I like to build small wooden toys for the children and this one is really easy and garanteed to impress.

Step 1: Manufacture the Different Parts

Picture of Manufacture the Different Parts

The "moving box" and the vibrating blade are cutted into an old wooden crate (a thin one).

The gear wheel is carved into a limb section, choosen for its regular diameter. For the sharp teeth I used a japanese saw, and for the other a round rasp.

For the handle, I took a blackthorn stick, and reduced one end to a 8 mm diameter.

Step 2: Final Assembly

Slide the floor of the box on the handle. Then the gear wheel (with a drop of wood glue). Then slide the top of the box.

Fit the vibrating blades into the wheel, glue the box with wood glue and press...
