I am impressed! Beautiful work. How did you get the shape so nice and round?

Very nice soccer ball, it looks great! How thick were the individual pieces to begin with? And did you turn it to get it nice and round?

Nice job Walid! I second Don’s question, how did you get it so round? Hand sanding or did you use some sort of jig?

I’m sitting here looking at a wooden soccer ball, but I still don’t believe. Great work.

This project must have been a ball to work on!

My question too, how did it get so round?

Hey guys look at the last pic to answer your question. Nice Work!
