There should have been two of these but the plywood was crap and I did replace it on this one but it’s twin ended up in the rubbish bin, couldn’t save it as per my signature. For those worried about foreign material there is 60% wood and 38% perspex (plexiglass) 2% dried glue..

I agree, it does make me think tropical fish. Very unusual design.

Thanks for the comments. I haven’t perfected this yet and have another 2 lots ready to turn.
If anyone is interested in trying these look up Dennis Keelings web site for instructions. Well worth a try.
