Nick had these A-10 30 Mil shells that were cleaned and polished…said can you make a tray-ish kind of thing that resembles the A-10 gun face. So…as usual I say sure. Here’s the walnut kind of thing I came up with. Blue felt in the bottom of the cups and a lazy Susan base to make it turn…oh by the way he had shot glasses from somewhere that happened to fit into the shells…

Sitting there by itself, not many people would recognize the significance of the objects. Quite a history.

Whoa, that’s a nice way to get shot by an A-10. Sort of :)
Did you build the LS too or is it a commercial unit?

I didn’t know the Warthog kept its shells onboard after shooting ammo BTW. If only ground hunters did the same here in France… we were looking for savage thyme the other day with the wife and found old rusty hunting shells every ten centimeters all over the ground… shameful.

That was truly good Luck. Very Nice way to serve up the drinks.

The only word I know to describe this, and one I don’t use often is: AWESOME! This is just too cool.

Great stuff! I had the same question as Soda, did you build the LS yourself or buy commercial?

I found a lazy Susan set at woodcraft. Not expensive. Whole thing was Nicks idea…knew I did odd stuff. Was fun. First thought of doing the barrels in cherry, but looked too different so I kept it all walnut. Got a set of cherry gun barrels…anyone?

Doesn’t the A-10 have spent Plutonium in the projectile? Contaminate the shells? Otherwise it is a neat idea. Like the Walnut throughout and the finish. The blue felt is a nice touch.

Depleted uranium (U238) – what’s left after the more fissionable isotope, U235, is removed (the so-called “enriching” that’s always in the news). It has a much longer radioactive half-life than U235, but it’s also a heavy metal, and is toxic for that reason, though the jury’s still out on how much.
