This pin cushion sits on the center of 240 mm diameter Lazy Susan that is surrounded by 18 wooden poles to hold cotton reels. All rise on 4 legs unlike the previous pin cushions that have tripods. The main timber is Queensland rosewood.

That is terrific Sam, a very handy addition to the sewing room. Nice turning and finish with the rose wood.
Thanks for showing, I am not letting my wife see it.

Good job!

How did you get the soft ball for holding the pins? It would seem like as you wrap the top cloth around the “under ball” (term ?) there would be folds / pleats in the top cloth.

That’s a beauty, Sam!

I really like the scooped out area inside of the spool pins.
