our new felting machine

I have long wanted a felting machine. I like felting, but I am at heart, a very lazy person and standing there rolling a wad of fiber around for thirty minutes just doesn't sound like a good time to me. So I showed my FIL a photo of one and said: "can you build it?". Well his version is up and running! Now comes all the experimenting and playing to find out just what we can and can't get away with. I think this will work really well with nuno felting, but only time will tell. I haven't really spent a lot of time with it yet, it's still pretty darn hot out in the shop. Heck, only two, three more months until cool weather is back again. By then I should know how to work this beasty.

Wow, your FIL built you one heck of a felting machine.

I was hoping to show the pictures to my darling husband, but what your FIL is way beyond my DH's capabilities.

Can I get more details on the construction? My wife is starting to felt and this might be a project that is assigned to me.
