It may go without saying, in your opinion, that any ball should necessarily be spherical, and therefore that our claim about the ease of making a “spherical ball” on a lathe is redundant and goofy. WELL YOU ARE WRONG!
You’ve clearly never used a lathe—which we have, thank you for asking—to make a spherical ball or a table leg or any other wooden implement that could benefit from a good scraping. If you had, you’d know that a distinct lack of skill with a lathe or any number of the specific lathe tools germane to the hobby could very easily turn out a ball that is well short of a perfect sphere. Spheres don’t just grow on trees, you know.
Except orange trees. But that’s not the point!Get your balls in the game! Donate to the Sean Kimerling Foundation to win the battle against testicular cancer.
