This wooden basket ball is made of 144 pieces of mahogany and sits on a base made of 72 pieces of black wood and it can be swirled for while if you push it gently by hand. The black lines are as a result of 3 hours of pyrography work. The ball is lifted of the base by 5mm by a metal bar with two hidden ballbrearings inside the ball to allow swirling around itself.
I am preparing a short video to show the swrling. You will watch it on my blog soon.
