Really nice, Izzy. Now you have me thinking. I turned some wood darts that I use in our clubhouse and at home.

How cool would it be if someone showed up at the alley with a genuine Izzy Swan wooden bowling ball??????? You may have to add weight in the center first to bring it to the proper weight, but you are the man who could do it. Maybe I’m thinking…............. ironwood!!!!!

Good work Izzy

The whole world needs more creative minds like yours to develop concepts and produce great products !

Well if that’s stretching it a bit at the very least you are sure appreciated at LJs anyway!

I have been trying to make a cockleshell jig for my router for some time but I have not had any real success yet, so you have inspired me to keep working at it.
