Trying to remember where I saw this originally since I made this 10+ years ago.

These are golf balls, not ping pong balls. Bought used ones from eBay and painted them by drilling a hole into the bottom of each ball, then making a jig with dowels that held ball so i could spray paint them.

This must weight 30+ pounds.

Enjoy,
Mr. Tall

Finally, something good to come out of golf!!! ‘Tis a wonderful idea. Have you had any problems with the paint flaking/peeling off in the last decade?

Thank you for the nice comments. Yes…it needs a little TLC. It was hanging outside under a covered patio for 10 years and now is in my man cave basement. I spray painted the golf balls and NO peeling or any issues.

I love the idea. How are the balls attached to the plywood?........I am assuming there is a 3/4” plywood square under everthing.

I spray painted the golf balls and no peeling at all…

The golf balls are glued with silicone caulk and yes there is a 1/2” or 5/8” plywood on the back
