I have a friend (Drema) that loves kaleidoscopes. I got the kit and bushings etc from Penn State and figured it’d be a no-brainer. I had a really hard time getting this one together.
I turned down a block of mopani to 2000 grit and polished it with my proprietary mixture (proprietary b/c I don’t remember what it is, lol). Pewter stand took a lot of work (should have measured it before turning). It ain’t perfect but it’s the thought that counts, right?
I thought this was a challenging project. Make fun of me all you’d like;) I just hope she likes it.
It was a pretty fun project if anyone’s considering one.
