I received an order for more of these small carousels. They have 3 bins and hold 8 decks in the two side bins- the center bin is for discards. One is made from Cherry and the other 2 are mesquite.They have 3” lazy Susan bearing under them and the bearings are sunk halfway into the the top unit to hide them. We use them when playing Hand and Foot

The bases are 6” x 11” and they are 4 1/4” high . They are finished with satin lacquer.

Cheers, Jim

Nice Jim, why hasn’t any of the game mfg’s contacted you – you’re nearly in production already

Nice Jim, really like the way you profiled the finger cutouts, very “handy” 8^)

Very nice Jim, that is a well thought out design. I bet if feels good to be back in the home shop.

You’re a card… nice design.

Very nice Jim and the base almost looks like a foot.

Jim, I hope you’re sticking with the woodwork as cards are a quick way downhill. Very nice work sir!

Cool Jim,
They look very interesting.


-- 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.

Thank you all for the nice comments!
Hi Dick. I really don’t like production but I agreed to 7 card holders for the folks that we play cards with so I got right to it when we got home.

Hi Eric, it sure is good to be in my own shop where no one else messes with my machines ( and screws them up)

Hi gave me a great idea for these 3 bin bases- on one end I could cut fingers and on the other end toes!! If I had a CNC laser I could make them quicker!

Hi crowie. Unfortunately all night activities in our park in Az were cancelled so we played cards 7 night a week most weeks. My card holders were everywhere..and now there will be more!!

Cheers, Jim
