I had turned this 280mm in diameter spherical maybe ten years ago. It was forgotten inside a box on a high shelf till yesterday when I was looking for something else. With gentle hand push, it turns aroune itself for while and the swirl design gives the effect of cyclone movement.
144 pieces of jarrah and tassie oak. The base may look a bit too high but I think it is necessary to be that high to sustain and stabilize the metal bar that carrys the ball.
