Never having turned a sphere previously but when asked if I could I said sure no problem. I got an initial order for 4×4” diam and 2 half 4” spheres, pic 3 they were not perfect but were good enough as these would be covered in leather. Pic 4 shows a sphere held in rubber chucky (see rubber chucky web site) and it became easier to get them spot on. Pic 1 are segmented spheres pic 2 piece of Oregon was turned using the above chucks.
The shells were addictive but I these have me by the balls (turning of course) and have a few ideas rolling around in the head.
