Swing Thing / Noise Maker

Introduction: 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

that was my firs instructable please leave comment on how i did and what i should change in the future thank you for your time and also if your going to create an instructable than make sure it works before posting it

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

    Agreed, and those pictures should be photos.
