These two (of twelve total) Kaleidoscopes are from the first edition. These are exceptionally beautiful, with solid wood bodies, Grade A first surface mirrors, with hand-worked glass ampules in the brass-bound object chamber. All of the glass ampules were hand worked by Richard Oedel,
… Furnituremaster. Dimensions: 7" long, approx 1 3/4 diameter, mahogany stand and drawstring bag included with each 'scope. Maple, Lacewood, Mahogany and Purpleheart bodies still available.
Initially these were started as a gift project, but grew to a number of different forms, lengths and object chambers.
We have a few of the First Edition Kaleidoscopes available to the first buyers, and also have several other designs that we have custom-made for our friends and clients.
Call if you would like to discuss any aspects of kaleidoscopes or would like me to develop a custom 'scope for you or your loved one.
Price is for one kaleidoscope from the First Edition. Please specify the wood you desire. Show above are Mahogany and Curly Maple 'scopes.

Richard Oedel of Fort Point Cabinetmakers was so helpful, professional, and creative throughout our design process of making a dining room table. Very professional drawings were presented; friendly and timely communication over the phone, email, and in person to take measurements and see our space; through attention to details and consideration to our project restrictions, preferences, and style. Very appreciative of our positive experience -- and would highly recommend as Richard has a sincere interest in completing a project to the exact customer's preference and specifications.

From the start, Richard Oedel of Fort Point Cabinetmakers was more than helpful and insightful. Because he was making matching benches for my dining table and my table was so large, he drove 60 miles each way to see it in person, take measurements and pictures to discern the right look. Drawings were presented, a budget was agreed upon and not only was the project delivered on time, but it matched perfectly and the quality was unsurpassed. I could not say enough good things about Fort Point Cabinetmakers as to their skill, quality of work, professionalism and sincere interest in completing a project to the exact customer specifications.
