Two small balls inside the sphere. Holes on the sphere are smaller then the diameter of the inner balls. it is impossible to free small balls without braking the sphere which was made from solid peace of maple and was never spilt apart.

This is outstanding! The finish is almost mirror like!

At first I had no idea how large these balls were until I saw your hand and saw they are relatively small. I don’t do any lathe work so I always amazed at these projects.

OK, I give up! How did you get the larger than the holes balls inside?

Boy, that looks like a fun project, I’m going to be scratching my head for a long time trying to figure out how you did that.

Wow! I don’t think I’ll be able to figure out how you did this either.
