Swing Thing / Noise Maker

About: im a kidd who goes to school

Ok, well this is basically a noise maker. Ohh and by the way this is my first instructable and i have no pictures yet because i made the project first... so lets begin. 

Step 1: Stuff

building materials
10-12 feet of 1/2 inch by 1 inch board (probably not that much but again didn't measure)
1-1 1/2 feet of 1by 6/8 inch board
about 1 1/2 hand fulls of 1 inch nails 
about 2 hand fulls of 2 inch nails

saw (any kind will do)
optional: vice

Step 2: The Thing Its Self

Ok so i'm going to enplane this the best i can
1.take your 1 by 6/8 board and set it on a flat surface
2.then cut your thin board into 4 10 inch peaces 
3.set 2 10 inch peaces on top of each other
4.place them on the board
5. repeat step 3&4 on the other side
6. place them about 1 1/2 inches apart from each other
7.nail the top and bottom of the boards together with a 2 inch nail while on the big board to put all 3 boards together
8. repeat step 7 on the other side
9. cut a small peace of thin board (just big enough to fit over both ends of the other thin board)
10.with a 2 inch nail nail both ends into both sides   

Step 3: The Swing It Self (top Guard)

1.put the thing to the side
2.cut a 7 foot piece of thin board
3.cut two 4-6 inch peaces of thin board
4.with a one inch nail, nail one board about a mili meter away from the edge of the long piece
5. repeat step 4 on the same side right under the first board(nail horizontally)
6. turn over and nail 2 2 inch nails in both sides of the one inch nail
7. do the same on the second board
8.turn board back to the front

Step 4: The Swing Its Self (the Hand Guard)+ Adding the Thing

this part is sort of tricky but all customizable so if not understood its just a hand guard
1. cut 2 4-6 inch peaces of thin board
2.cut 2 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 peaces of thin board
3. slide the (thing) on to the sling
4.18 -24 inches from the bottom place one of step ones peaces under the sling (bottom=opposite side from top guard)
5. put the other piece from step 1 on top of the sling
6.with 2 inch nails nail one nail from one side and one on the other
7. repeat step 6 until you feel comfortable that the thing wont crush/smash your hands
8.place step 2 board in between the openings on the sides of the hand guard
9.repeat step 6&7 on the part where you just plugged the oppenings 

Step 5: How to Use

hold the handle at an angle so the thing is about 2 feet away from the hand guard of the swing and then swing it above your head and it will collide with the top guard and create a loud clap or bang noise 

Step 6: Requests

    You should use pictures of each step to illustrate the process. Not the same picture for all steps.
