I gave my sister a year to get her golf clubs out of my garage. The deadline passed – So I dusted them off and took my hacksaw to them (don’t worry, they were good-for-nothing). The final product came out nice a sturdy. The four irons made it a little top heavy, so the base is a little bigger then I planned. When I gave the piece to my sister for Christmas she got a little teary – success. Measures 70” tall. Made from oak and cherry. Finished with Minwax Polyshade.

LOL, I noticed you used Top Flite Golf Balls….Excellent choice…that’s about all their good for in my book ;>) I like the putter support and hole in the bottom…great idea. Well done.
