This is a test of a jimmy rigged lazy susan mounted to a slow speed gear motor.I always have ideas running through my head about how to share my custom wooden rocking chairs and other pieces, this is one of the less refined ideas, but i’m happy my idea is going to work out well once I get the bugs worked out.
Hopefully soon I will build a dolly for the camera so the camera can move while the chair rotates.
This example is using a Walnut with Ebony plugs custom wood rocking chair, the chair is 80% finished but still needs much attention in the sanding and finishing department.
Hope you enjoy.
This is produced by taking 1 picture every second while the chair spins at about .1rpm I then crop and put the images together, for this particular shot I ran it at 50 frames per second.
