    Very cool, Tom. A kaleidoscopic kaleidoscope. Did you do the inner parts from scratch, or use a kit?

    I did the whole thing including the insides. It is approximately 8" from end to end and 3" round. I got the plans from www.duxterity.com.
    I cut the mirrors myself the object case holds a piece of pvc filled with crushed up pr encased in mineral oil so it floats as you turn the case.

    Very nice, sounds extremely hard, I have enough difficulties with the kits let alone trying to build it from scratch!!!
