This is a replica US Navy P-3 Orion prop. It measures roughly 28 inches tip to tip. Made with mahogany, cherry, maple, walnut, hickory and an unknown species for the nose cone. I started out with 1” stock for the prop blades and rough-shaped with a belt sander to get the pitch. I used a 3” lazy Susan spinner so it would rotate. Mounted up using a French cleat.

Clip on the link to see her rotate.

Ha, I tried to comment on this yesterday, and it and my comment just disappeared completely. If I did something wrong, sorry.

What I wanted to post was, that is great looking piece. Well done!

Thank you. No issues with your response at all; I had some problems with posting the right pictures so just started over. Thanks for commenting again after my screwup.

Thanks Pointer. I read you intro…..Don’t worry about posting your projects. We all had to start somewhere. I learn something new every project it seems. Also if you post your pictures, there are lots of folks on here to help improving. Great group of folks in this forum.
