This is a joint project … I turned the base, thread spool, and the shaft while my wife made the cloth “YoYo’s” that make up the branches on the tree.

It is about 9” tall … the wood components are hard maple, the cloth components are scraps she has been accumulating in the sewing room.

SWMBO is a quilter, and said quilters will know what a YoYo is!

Really outstanding collaboration!

It is all part of my sinister master plan … if I make enough stuff that she really likes, it will be impossible for her to say ‘NO’ when I bring up ordering a new lathe!

What lathe do you have in mind?

First choice would be a Robust Sweet 16.
