PIN CUSHION TURNING ON TRIPOD

This is the second pin cushion of the same idea and the third one is underway to be ready to go to the timber show in July. This one takes 24 reels that rotate on Lazy Susan system on the top of tripod which is turned and then carved to get its shape. All parts are made of 3 segments of vertically laminated plywood. To enhance it and cover the end grain of the plywood, I added rosewood rim to the pin cushion. 260 mm in diameter.

Great idea, Sam!

Plywood certainly makes for some interesting designs.
