A What's It
Time to carve: 1.5 hours
Finishing: .5 hours
An interesting slide because it raises an eyebrow when people see it but also scratching their heads when they see what it can do. Carved from maple and the dot attached with fishing line. I finished it off with shellac.
The science behind this is the slide, despite the weight of the belt, transfers the center of gravity to the tip of the slide. By focusing this to the tip, I can balance the belt on my finger.
