Our guild has been asked to make some more 19th century toys for a kids day at Meijers Gardens in Feb. I volunteered to make 20 of these Cup and Ball toys and I got the help of 4 of the students in the woodshop class that were working on the lathes with me.
The cups were turned from maple, poplar and walnut square stock and the dowels were grooved and rounded for the handles. We all did a part of them and It took 2 of their classes to do it.The 3rd shot is our team and the 4th shot is the only process shot of the drilling for the handle. I went through the spigot for centering before I cut off the spigot. The cups were all bored with a bedan.
There is no finish on them because if you finish toys it has to be tested and approved so our guild opted for no finish on any of them.
