I could not stop on turning two dodecahedrons inside the sphere. (my previous project posted here) This time I made five layers total from the two inch diameter ball. Picture 4 is work in progress. And on the last one is bubinga wood ball that I will be making same five layers. This is going to be my first try on exotic wood…

I have no idea how you even start to do something like this on any scale. Wow!

Fantastic Yuri! These look really well done. I am working towards the Chinese ball, but I haven’t got there yet. I had some problems with my ball chuck and I’m just finishing a new one that I hope will work well.

I’m with rance on the blog request…..I’d love to see your complete process from start to finish, because looking at the finished project and trying to figure out how you accomplished it is boggling my mind right now! :)
