5 Bin Card Carousels

 I received an order for another 5 bin card carousel so I made two. They are made from solid cherry and mounted on a lazy Susan bearing. The base is 11" diameter and the unit is about 5 1/2" high. The card bins are 2.750" x 3.750" giving 1/4" clearance to the cards. The 4 outer bins hold a max of 11 decks but we generally play hand and foot with 8 decks. The center bin holds 2 1/2 decks of discards. Each bin has a relief in the card pick up area so you can easily get under the bottom card. The 10th photo shows the 5 degree angle gage I made for laying out all the slot openings.
 
 They are finished with shellac. clear satin lacquer and then scuff waxed with 0000 steel wool and wax.
 
 Cheers, Jim









Very nice and sophisticated, well done.

(I think you could sell them to the casinos...)

I've never heard of "hand and foot"  I'll have to look it up.
Nice little holder.  

Another one of those projects that doesn't show how much work goes into it to get it to look that good.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

Sharp looking. Sure looks like a whole bunch of little pieces. Great job !!!   Mike
