This is a multi-wood Ferris wheel I made for my great niece – 40 years ago, I made one for her father. It was quite a surprise for them to get this. Made from Birch,Walnut, Gum, Maple, Rosewood, Ash, & Mahogany.

About 12” around the sides are mahogany and ash 1/2” thick/ The seats are Walnut and Ash, the people are Maple clothes pins the A frame is gum with a rosewood washer, birch dowel and dowel caps. I have my laser cutting dun at the local trophy store for about 10 bucks per project.
