I have to say that I love the lighthouse scope. With my family being from the east coast of Canada, that would be very popular with us. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I really like the kaleidoscopes and the lighthouse. I would have never thought of that.
I have considered salt & pepper grinders modeled after lighthouses on our NC coast.

Does anyone think I should teach how to make them

I was curious if anyone would be interested in Kaleidoscope making I was once told less than 100 people knew how to make them. I can offer this later when I have all the training modules perfected?

I would hate to see this craft become extinct, but if no one teaches the craft I can see this happening.

As I mentioned though it will take a while to put it all together but I can upload the instructions as I go.

Let me know your thoughts.

25 post limit

Thanks guys for letting me know about the 25 posts minimum needed to PM and do other things. This seems generous as one forum I belong to requires 50.
thanks again

okiebugg please add your picture

Okiebugg

Please post a pic of your work. there are 1000's of different designs for kaleidoscopes and other pictures of other scopes makes them more interesting for everyone. As you know the scope rises and falls on the mirrors. Having your picture will start the creative juices flowing in all of us.

Thanks

Have a safe day

One of the more elaborate K's I've made over the years. 23 varieties of hardwoods. Hand made gearset for turning the tumbler. Tiltable. removeable C-ring turned on the lathe made of Coco Bola. This is made to be able to easily change the trinkets to watch parts or other stuff. It has a self contained light (switch activated) for easy viewing.
