Just a fun project and conversation piece. There’s always something to make in wood. Maple, Paduk and Brass
It’s actually an “executive toy” ~ for those over paid guys sitting at desks, yakin on the phone, while someone else does the work: or commonly called a BS grinder.

That’s pretty cool. Doesn’t do much, but still pretty cool!

Let’s is now, what could one do with that? It could be used as a….........or maybe a…, that would not work, I got it, it is a…..... but then I don’t think so. Is it for a right handed person or a left handed person and which way is it suppose to turn. I give up, I would just set it on the coffee table and let others play with it.

This is really creative. I have never seen one. I guess those executives are keeping them a secret. I bet my boss has one of those. That’s why we are in such a mess at work.

You obviously have a vivid imagination and are quite creative. This is a nice “toy” and I really like the wood combination.

Thanks for the post.
