It’s the same as the bolt thru the wood. My main fear was that the marbles would crack but, they did ok. Gonna be lots of fun….

Gary … how did you made the inside corners so there is room enoff for the marbles with a knife or…..

Dennis, I used a knife to trim the inside before I boiled it. Then, after the marbles were in, I used sand paper to clean up the insides. I didn’t show the finished product. I sanded the whole thing and gave it shape. It’s down at the hardware store now.

Thank´s Gary I thought it was something like that I still remember how I cut a rectangle lamp with a knife as boyscout but instead ofhaving a candle inside we cut a ball ( that cuoldn´t get out ) out of the same piece of wood so when carving the lamp you also formed the ball a nice little winther job for a knife :-)

About 3 decades ago I used to carve balls in a cage and chains. It was fun then. Never carved a lamp….

I think the lamp and cage is the same more or less just different names for it :-)

Been wondering how I should display my old marbles.
