Hiya guys, this is just a slideshow of one of the many homemade nunchakus that I have. I made this around four months ago, but I didn't have time to post it up until now. Nothing really inspired me to do this, I was just bored one day, so I decided to just make a quick nunchaku.
How I did this is I sawed a small hardwood (not softwood) dowel in half, sand the whole thing with a belt sander so it's smooth, did a final sandpaper job on the shafts, drill a hole in each shaft to put the string in, tie two strings on each shaft (make sure that the strings also connect the shafts together), and wrapped a part of the shaft with electrical tape to make a grip.
I'm pretty happy with this, it looks fine IMO, and is quite durable and easy to re-string.
