Here are 4 more of the 5 bin card carousels that were ordered by people in our park.

They are made from cherry and the bin walls are now 1/4”. They are finished with clear semi gloss enamel.

Cheers, Jim

Beautiful, Jim. The 1/4” bin walls give a lighter look.

Thanks Ivan, Lew, Crowie and Terry!!

Hi Crowie. we play a game in the park called Hand and Foot. It is like Canasta where you make books of cards with a bunch of rules. We use 8 decks in the outer bins and the center bin is for discards.

Hi Terry. You might say that. I have 4 projects going and just started another one tonight…have all the stock cut. All the others are waiting for something…mostly drying for a number of days. It is 90 here and we are going to the beach tomorrow…only a half day of work maybe!

Cheers, Jim

WOT JJ... no unicorns? Still neat.

Is there a lazy one under them?

I remember Canasta… It was what changed me from cans to casks…

In fact I still have the deck

that caused my demise 45 years ago.

Jim, I don’t even own 8 decks of cards – nice job on the carousels, oh and the 1/4” walls (to me) are a great improvement

This looks like one of those projects that looks easy but turn out to be quite time consuming. You did a wonderful job on them. Very nice!

Thanks, Alex, Cliff, Dick and Jeff!!

Hi Dick, the thicker bin sides give more area for glue. They used to be 3/16”. I dropped ours in Az and broke one of the bins but it was fully repaired easily. I think this will also make them stronger. Planing to 1/4” is also easier than planing to 3/16”.
Cheers, Jim

Very nice work on them Jim. There’s enough complex work there to keep you in the shop for awhile. I agree with Ivan, i think they’re ready for the market.

Thanks, Dave. I was reluctant to do this many. I’m taking 7 back with us this winter. I don’t like production. I’m raising the prices on any further ones because it is real time consuming. I don’t have a CNC and all the parts are cut by hand.

Cheers, Jim
