A fidget spinner as explained in Wikipedia
I found some optical cable rolls at work that were made from MDF for the ends of the rolls. So I ended up with 12 round MDF pieces 18 inches in diameter 1/4 inch thick. They are perfect for things that I can cut on my scroll saw but I intend to paint. Such as these Fidget Spinners.
I have three distinct designs I am working on. The first two are from Steve Good of scrollsawworkshop.blogspot.com he designs patterns and gives them away for free. Has plenty of tips and ideas overall his site is a very good source of information about scrolling.
His first pattern that I cut is this one. At this point I have cut out the shape but I have not yet drilled the holes for the bearings. I decided I need to drill these out as I wanted perfectly round holes and it was a good excuse to use a Forstner bit.
Then I made up this one from the Batman Signal. This was interesting as I wanted the shape but struggled with how big it should be and still fit between my fingers. My hand is not large so it was a challenge but in the end it just fits my hand which means most people will be able to play with it.
I still have the pattern glued on the mdf at this point as I had just drilled the pilot holes so that I could drill from both sides to help eliminate tear out from the Forstner bit. I don't have a drill press so I just used my hald held drill and held it as straight as I could which seemed to have worked out fine. Here are the pictures of these drilled and the pattern removed. I have sanded them to get them as smooth as possible and get rid of any fuzzies that were left over. from the drilling and scrolling.
I have begun to paint them and once I am done and I put the bearings in I will post more about these.
