Kaleidoscope

Post by Wod »

I've been wanting to build this thing for about 25 years, but my wood lathe skills suck. Fortunately, with Aspire and a rotary, I finally got it done. The gears were also cut on the rotary using Art Fenerty's Gearotic Motion to generate the code.

Looks fantastic, Wiley!

I’ve had “kaleidoscope project” on my to-do list for years. Glad to see someone actually make one!

Thank you for the inspiration!
