Topic tags/keywords: ball

I need to make a ball out of hardwood. In fact I need to make two symetrical ones. I have lots of tools including a rigid side sander. I am making vise handle ends. Need to be about 1.5” in diameter. Any suggestions? I forgot to mention I don’t have a lathe.

If you don’t get any ideas you can work with, drop me a PM. We will work something out.

If you have turning tools you could chuck it up in you drill press or make a jig for your router I think I saw one on Ljs

Here’s a interesting approach
