Today I show you the making of a small ball series of yew-, apple- and an unknown wood from Tyrol.
I turned the pieces of wood first to a cylinder and then roughly into the contours of a ball by hand, then I turned the ball shape with the ball turning device.
I sawed off the cones and clamped the ball again into the ball turning device and sanded it up to grain 500. Finally I treated the balls with linseed oil.

Nice work Roger.
I especially like the live edge/bark that you’ve kept on some of the balls.
Very cool.

that’s some very interesting processes you have going there Roger

I don’t do turning as such but the radius equipment is certainly of interest, and makes me wonder if my BFF LBD and Potzzy have similar setups

Otherwise keep turning out those balls, great stuff!
