I made this golf ball display rack for my dad for Christmas. I ask him if I could make him something what would he like it to be. He asked for a display for golf ball. He wanted it to hold about 60 balls. So this is what I came up with. I want to create something that I didn’t recall seeing. It is made with Sugar Maple, Walnut and Ebony.

Good idea. Nice Job. I have a friend that is in the insurance business. He collects golfballs that has only insurance logos.

That is very nice. It has a 3D effect. How did you anchor the ball holders to the back?

Closetguy, Each ball shelf has a routed out slot that it is glued into.

Great solution, very nice. Think you have a hit a hole in one there!

This is a very nice display. I collect shot glasses and unlike golf balls they come in many shape and sizes. This could easily be turned into a shot glass display that is flexible enough to hold all comers…all ready in my favorites list!

“I want to create something that I didn’t recall seeing.”
I think you succeeded. Looks great. I saw a display some years back in a magazine and yours is truly head and shoulders above theirs.

Nice display! I couldn’t have one of those. I keep losing golf balls.

Its a beautiful piece. I think golf is the greatest game in the world.

what did you use to make the depression for the ball to sit in?

I made a couple golf ball displays also, different design, that was back in the day when I thought I was going to set the world on fire with them. They turned out nice, but you know the story.

Thanks for posting it.

You ought to make a few smaller samples of this and give them to local custom picture framing shops – then make them custom ordered for the frame shops.

Heck, I think I’ll do that too!

Great design.
