Metalworking is not my favorite thing to do, but I’m happy with how this project turned out:
The brass is 1/2″ x 1/16″ strip, cut to length. The top retainer is secured using #4 x 1/4″ wood screws, countersunk, while the spinners are secured with #4 x 1/4″ roundhead screws. Everything is nice and secure with this simple configuration.
Finally ready to finish: Will attack the brass with Flitz, and stain and finish the wood.
