Topic tags/keywords: oak

These balls are Red Oak With a hole through the center for a 3/8” dowel I paid $2300 for them. I am selling them for $900. Red Oak balls are a special order. on one stocks them. These are the same style balls you have seen in my fret work designs. The only reason I am selling them is because I am moving up north and I don’t have room in the truck with all my tools. If anyone is interested let me know.

-- Have a great day.

That would be less than 2 for each cab driver in NY. I believe the tour guide told u there were 13,000 yellow taxis in NY….I noticed than many of them had a bent fender. LOL

Why in the world would you move up north where it is cold?

BALLS TO THE WALL. I am moving up north because my father is 80 and not in good health. I want to be there for him. I will start my own small shop and freeze my ass off.

-- Have a great day.

I wish you and your father the very best. Are you headed to the tundra? Be sure to purchase a good heater, even the summers are cold!

Are you sure you have to leave without your balls – you couldn’t just drag them along?

I am going back home where I grew up in Warwick Rhode Island ( the cold state) I am renting a 26’ box truck and it will be packed with a shop full of tools. No room for my balls :)

-- Have a great day.

Just as a thought… What about filling Priority Mail boxes full for said price and cost of shipping. I think the balls “might’ sell faster that way. Just a thought. (24,000 wood balls! holly cow!)
