Golf Ball Display Shelf

My brother in law collects golf balls with logo’s on them and asked if I could build something on which he could display his collection. After looking at a few different designs online, I finally came up with my own version. Most every design I looked at had holes drilled in it to hold the balls in place. I was very tickled when he told me he didn’t want that. He plans on using rubber washers to set them on. That meant 100 holes I didn’t have to drill. He is a pretty good guy even if he is related to my wife…rofl. it can either be hung on the wall or I made a set of feet that can be attached to the base so it can be free standing. Its built out of red oak and finished with Danish Oil.

Monte- Thank you sir

Jim- Thank you sir. He had over 50 of them already so I tried to give him room to grow.

L2L- Thanks buddy. We have played a round or two and he is way outta my league. I gave it up officially when my son was 12 and I discovered he could out drive me…lol

Todd- thank you buddy. I seem to remember the belt buckle display turning out way better than this one…plus it was cedar…lol

Hoss- Thanks Marty. How goes the new shop build? I sorta lost track.

Washers are a whole lot easier to rearrange! Nicely done Buster! The detachable feet are a great touch. Thanks for sharing.

Marty- Thank you my friend. Not quite sure how I missed your comment last night… early onset sometimers maybe??? lol As far as brother in laws go, he is a pretty good egg. He has jumped in and helped me out on several occasions so I wont hold it against him that he is related to my wife..lol

Candy- Thank You. You may have a point on the easier to arrange point. I figured it was if he ever got tired of golf ball collecting, he could use it to start a fish hook collection or some such…lol

Dave- Thank you buddy. Give me a sec to consider the wooden washer idea….ummmm….no!!! lol

Hmmmm, in-law asks you to build a rack to display his balls and you say “Sure”
What’s wrong with this picture??

Nice rack, Dude!
