This 5 min hourglass made for cherry 1/4 inch scrap thins and the hourglass from Leevaley. Cherry thins were so small that I had to glue four pieces together to create even internal small surface.

Nice looking piece Yuri: I did one with three supports that I turned on a lathe, each of the spindles had 10 hour glass shapes running down them

This is the best use of scraps that I have yet seen. Great looking project.

Great looking hourglass! I have an actual “1 hour” hourglass I am still looking to use. Just waiting for a good idea.
