Spinning the Wheel of Fortune

A quick project we built over the last week is a Wheel of Fortune raffle wheel for Volunteer South.

The excellent Pukka Signs printed up the graphic and applied it to a 1m disk of ACM. ACM is quite good for this sort of thing, stable and easy to cut.

We used some scrap of that interesting thermally treated timber for the mast, recycled alpine tent pole for the pins and repurposed timber for the base. The clacker, made by Charlie, is an offcut of hardwood deck and the clacker retainer shock cord from the tent poles.

Using the drill press we made some really cool washer/supports from the 6mm acrylic retail dividers that Allan came across which we affixed to the ACM on both sides to prevent wear over time.

And here it is finished ..
