Here it is, finished at last, and called “A Little Story” It’ s only a small thing, about 300mm high, but it’s had a difficult gestation.
Some of the parts I made but discarded are shown below
I had quite a struggle connecting it to the base. On the left a davit attaches to the top, whilst the right photo shows a midway mounting. Different swivel styles were also tried, but in the end I went for a simple rigid post mounting. There are no moving parts in this one at all.
