Show & Tell: Bookends

Show & tell: bookends just shipped out today: this is the first set I've made in a loooooong time :)

The bearings all move; they spin around within each other; very fun & cool looking
This is a matching pair; commissioned by a daughter for her dad's birthday: hope he likes them!

The bearings are all salvaged: from a heavy equipment transmission shop: thanks Larry :)   I clean the grease off & then weld them together--it's hard to come up with matching sets, but it worked out perfect this time :)
