She spins folks, she spins!

Yes folks, she works! Hub made her and then we tweaked her. I was about to go insane when I grabbed my glue gun, some wooden blocks and a couple tinker toys. I'd already done enough damage to the poor thing (I may go into more detail some day, when I get sick of spinning) so I just went at it armed and ready and she works! She needs a much bigger wheel, the spindle is a bit wobbly, but she does exactly what I need her to do.

I'm going to let my kids go at her with some watercolors soon and she'll be the grooviest little wheel on the block! Most likely the only wheel on the block but groovy nonetheless.
