This is my first attemp to make rounded joints… The design is simple and used two radii only so it is easy to set-up router circle jig. Here is the sketch up drawing. I like to have your ideas whether it is much better to use solid wood rather than veneer. My last project was so difficult to glue the veneer.

The globe. My previous plan was a flat circle ball. Since it is still possible to make a ball a globelike structure. So be it. Here are the sketchup: If you have suggestion on how to make the globe without using a lathe, (just because I don’t have one.) Feel free.
