My wife won an autographed football at Chicago Bears training camp. I made this stand from leftover African mahogany. Finished it with a few coats of Arm-R-Seal and wax.

Did Jay Cutler sign it with his tears?

Nice looking stand for something I would certainly cherish. Football season is here!

No – I didn’t see any Cutler tears on it – football was signed by Kevin White, injured #1 draft pick.

Did you check to see if it was properly inflated? (Sorry, I tried to resist but I just had to ask.)

Now that I have that out of my system, I think it is a really nice way to display the ball. Hopefully Kevin White will recover and have the kind of career that will make the ball even more special.

As soon as I saw the picture I just knew one of these wise guys would ask about the inflation! :)
That wood is beautiful.
Nice job!

Thanks guys – yep – the inflation saga will live forever. But this ball seems to be inflated just fine.
