I called this THE BIG DRIVE as I wanted to imply a golf ball going in an arc .
This is just a proto type I made up but I think once I add a base it will be a good looking trophy .
Made from willow with some pretty wild grain and I anticipated some problems with getting the ball in the cage but luck was with me and it all went well with this fun project .
Done on the drill press and cut out with a coping saw and I got to try my shop made sanding sleeves on the spindle sander which worked well .

Very innovative! You’ve added that special “Kiefer touch” that really makes it stand out.

It has a few of the Kiefer lines in it but it is more “Out of the Box!” Nicely done!

You have a great imagination Klaus. The arc is a excellent touch. The base should really set it off.

I can see how the sanding sleeves on your sander made a difficult task for me easy for you. And -yeah your project has the ‘Kiefer touch’.

Great looking piece Klaus, I was wondering how long it would take before someone took a spin-off the straight ones.
Well done and thanks for “Chucking” this in the ring.
