    Last year I came across the Winfieldcollection Christmas ferris wheel plans, Having never made anything out of wood before, I thought I would give it a go.


    Here we are 1 year later, and it is now operational complete with slip rings, industrial bearings, wooden cogs and technicolor pixels

    Looks great Andrew. How do you power up the lights without the cord getting wound round and round
