Christmas pyramid

This is the second one I’ve made so far. I started last year and let it sit for awhile to think about its design. Once I got it functional and the design all figured out, I added some artwork for decor. It came out beautifully with the cedar plwood and painted Baltic birch combo. It functions well with a metal rod that I placed a toothpick in for a sharp spinning tip. It spins on a small acrylic disc below the base. Thanks for looking!

So you spin it by hand, or is it motorized?
It looks wonderful!

It is candle powered. The heat from the candles rises and makes the propellers spin.

The articulated reindeer are fabulous - I mean the whole thing is fabulous, but those made me smile :smiley:

Any chance of filming a short video and posting (either here if it’s really short, or to YouTube or Vimeo or something else and posting the link here)?

If you haven’t seen it, @dwardio made a completely different, but same mechanic, one last year:

I love it! All the details are fantastic but my favorites are the reindeer!

The cedar really fits in well with this candle carousel. Will make a superb holiday decoration.
