These are four card carousels that were ordered by people in our park in Arizona. They are all made from solid cherry and have 5 card pockets. The center one is for the discards and holds about 3 deck and the ones around it hold 2 decks+ each. We usually play with 8 decks for 6 players. They are on lazy Susan bearings and are finished with clear satin lacquer. I used 3 boards to make these and was lucky to find someone open to sell them.

I added some process shots below…..........Cheers, Jim….......... Be safe!!!!!!

I use the milling machine a lot for woodworking!

Nice build pictures! I’ll bet that milling machine really speeds up making duplicate items.

Hey Jim, I really like these, but curious about what game you play with so many decks.

Great idea. What are you with all those cards???

Sheila, you are right. I have no scrap just UDP (undesignated projects).

-- Joel, People ask what I make. I tell them I make sawdust, and now and then a nice box or frame,or clock, or lamp pops out.

Thanks for all the nice comments. I was not going to make any more after I made 3 but they bugged me so much that I decided to make one last production run of them.

Hi Lew. I love the mill. It replaces cutting upside down on a router table with some pretty scary set ups. This way I can see the cutting taking place and cut to a pencil line!

Hi Sheila, we play a game called Hand and Foot and we use 8 deck of cards in the rack. It is like Canasta. I made the first one of these just for that center stack so the cards would sit onto top of each other and you could not see what was underneath. When you pick up the stack, you have to pick up 8 cards and you want to avoid getting 3’s because they only count against you. From that center stack I made a carrier for all the cards and made it spin!

cheers, Jim

You’re getting good at these Jim.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I could see you developing a modular system where you swap out the card caddies depending on the game (even one for poker chips).

A very creative device Jim!
