Spiral objects

Hi everyone, what can i do to model spiral objects using sketchup? i am trying to model a base for a table and it should have small pieces of wood in a spiral design.

Do you have a photo of the sort of thing you have in mind? Do you need to show the individual segments?

Are you really using the free version of SketchUp 5 like your profile says?

Yes i have a photo of the Table i want to create.

I got another version now. Sketchup make 2017

Please correct your profile.

And you are using SketchUp 2017 Make for your business?

I think this may have the illusion of being a spiral but is perhaps made of straight rods copied around on an angle?
