    Sidewalk Spirograph

    This might be something I'll have to scale down and try. Looks like the larger circle could be done in several pieces and connected together...

    That's very cool. I lived a deprived life...never had a Spirograph, even though I wanted one badly.

    Me too. Lol used to watch the rich kid over the road play with hers. She never allowed friends to even touch it.
    No sharing back in those days. Lol
    Although her mom did give me a glass of Fortris juice every now and then. (Fortris was a drink for wealthy kids lol we had cool aid)
    cheers

    Me, too, Vaughn. No sidewalk, let alone a Spirograph!

    Very nice project, for sure. The outer rim looks like six pieces connected like a puzzle, so it would be easy to carry around. Also, it would be a good CNC project!

    Ah come on folks, every kid had a spirograph. Even McDonalds gave them out in Happy Meals.
    My mom would complain because we made designs on every scrap of paper in the house until we got sick of the thing and threw it in the back of the toy box

    Now a huge sidewalk one would be pretty cool !!! but the grandkids would go through $50.00 worth of chalk in a weekend
