My instrument is called The Wrencher it belongs to the percussion family. It falls under that category because you have to hit it to make a noise. To make my instrument I made a wood stand with poles up the ends. Then my Dad helped me drill holes in the top of the poles to wedge a smaller pole into it. Then my dad helped me drill small holes into the small rod to push my string through. At the end of the rope I hung six different wrenches, arranged in length so the sound would be higher in the short wrenches and it would be lower in the longer wrenches. To play my instrument I hit one or more of the wrenches with a small hammer. I decorated my instrument with pennies and I used a wood burner to burn the name of my instrument on it as well as decorative lines.
