Kaleidoscope made of Maple,Cherry,Poplar and Walnut. Rotate the handle and the gears move the lens on front. Lens are interchangeable. You can make as many lens as you can think of. Pressing the red button illuminates the light on front. This was my very first turning project on my new lathe. My first time using hardwoods and finishing them. First time gluing up wood to get the thicknesses needed. First time cutting glass. Glass was for the lens on front and the internal mirror is called first surface mirror. Turned out much nicer then I thought I could do but I learned a lot in the process. Fun to build and it will impress everyone.
