Tibetan Prayer Wheel

I was inspired by Tom Hohl from the segmented woodturners website and thought that a prayer wheel would make an excellent gift for my sister. It's made of walnut and sycamore, mounted on a lazy susan so that it spins. It's roughly 12 inches tall and about 6 inches in diameter at the base and top rim. Still needs a few more coats of poly, but I was excited to share what I've been working on for the last month.

If you want some more info about what a tibetan prayer wheel is see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prayer_wheel

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

very nice wook ... excellent choice of woods

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Beautiful project, nicely rendered!


...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

Very nice piece. I like it a lot. May have to try one someday.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
