Ok, I admit that I like to make unique items, so here’s another one. The wood is from a section of a cedar post, and that is a real golf ball (not a sponge fake). I have tried to show all sides of the “cube” as close up as my camera will permit for the photos. Enjoy.
p.s. – I see that there will be questions about soaking, steaming, and bending, but as in my Twisted Dovetail box, none of these methods were used.
p.p.s. – Since there are several people who are interested in the bottom edge of the block, I have replaced one of the photos with the closest shot I can get of part of the bottom corner. The bottom face is still rough from the bandsaw (horizontal marks), but you should still be able to follow the grain patterns. Keep smilin’.
p.p.p.s. – I sanded off the bottom of the block to remove the bandsaw marks, and Photo 6 has been updated to show a closer view of the grain pattern going around the corners without any joints.
