This volleyball is made from walnuy and maple. It took alot of plannimg to get the lines to look curved and at the right angles after it is turned round. The size is within 1/8 inch of a real one. (The pic with the real one is sirting loeer so it looks smaller). This was only roind 1. More to come in the future

That’s both beautiful and impressive! It’s difficult to see from your glue-up how a volleyball will appear from that, but you did it… somehow.
