The main part of it is walnut, with the stripes and laces being made of maple. The small valve stem is made from wenge.

not sure how long the process was to make it but I think $150 to $200 to the right person.

That’s beautiful and amazing to boot! Is that one piece of walnut? Is this actual football size?

That is the exact size of a football. The core was made from 4 pieces of walnut that I mitered.

I made one a few years back as a fantasy football trophy, albeit, not as nice as yours. Ive seen similar items on the web go for $150 if I remember correctly. You did a really nice job on it.

I second the $150 range. May seem high but with it being a specialty, custom item I don’t think you would have any problems getting this price.
