Beads

I haven't posted this on the my blog even though they have been done more than a year.  This was part of the Christmas presents for the nieces and nephews last year.  I was not happy how the paint on the white and yellow beads kept cracking.  It still does and I am saying "oh well."  I made five sets and I have two extra. 
They were interesting to make.  They are are all out of 8/4 lumber (planed down to 1 1/2")  All the parts were made on the table saw except the cylinders, they are cut dowel.  They were simple to make not so easy to paint.  Maybe I will try Rit fabric dye if I make these again.
