This project is a spin-off (all puns intended) of a much larger wind spinner my father made from oak and walnut. In making the pieces for that he had some roughly 1/8 in. thick slats of both woods left over so I went nuts on the band saw making (30) 3/8” x 1/8” x 3 1/2” pieces and set to drilling. The center threaded rod is 6-32 all-thread and the brass pieces are thumb nuts. Unfortunately the local Lowes hardware didn’t have any 6-23 screw eyes so I had to go with 5-32 (they didn’t have any 5-32 all thread either :-P) Since a 5-32 to 6-32 coupler didn’t exist I made one from a small piece of oak for strength.
