Knex Noise Shaker

About: I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4 13

This is a knex noise maker that I build, and it rattles when you shake it. There are wheels in the middle that move back and forth when you shake it, thus producing a rattle sound. It is very loud if you shake it really hard.
