These are two carousels I made for our place in Arizona. One will be for us and the other will be given to the auction for the material that the women use to make hats and teddy bears for cancer patients.
They are made out of cherry from the boards I got from our end of the year guild picnic at the saw mill. Thanks John!! They hold 8 decks and these have 1/8” more clearance in each compartment than the original one I made years ago. The high center compartment is for the discards.They spin on 4” lazy susans.
The base is 1/2” x 10 5/8” diameter and the compartments are 2 11/16”x 3 11/16” Cards are 2.5” x3.5”.
The dividers were planed to .160. They had to be done first for the calculation of all the sizes.
They are finished with clear lacquer.
Here are some shots of the finger clearance ports being cut:
The main board spent some time on the lathe cutting the .200” deep relief in the bottom so the lazy susan does not show and to make it real easy to align it during assembly.
