This is a kaleidoscope of any piece of wood laying around which I could cut into a segment and glue together.
Tried to get photo looking through the glass but didn’t turn out very well.
There is 266 pieces finished with blo/lacquer.

Looks like a Kaleidoscope of many colors, your mama gave to you. You could write a song about it. I think Dolly would help you.

Nice job. Makes me want to re-do one of those HF flashlights.

nice did you use ball bearing for the object chamber? If so, did you have to sue two ball bearings?

There are enough pieces of wood there to drive a person nuts just trying to glue it all together. Very nice finished look.
