    Default LV Box

    I was not planning on going in the workshop to turn this as I had something else I wanted to complete.
    Anyway, this is a box made from Lignum Vitae and measures 4" X 3" to the top of the finial/handle. Sanded to 2000grit using woodwax 22 as a lubricant as I feel it needed nothing else as it looks OK
    Only 17 more balls to go and one small one not sure what to make with them

    That is impressive whats the knob made of?
    Thats a lot of balls you have to play with [emoji1787]
    Some poor old bowlers hung theirs up and you grabed them at reasonable price obviously.

    Edited must gave been hard turning a round bowl into a round bowl [emoji848]

    Thank you.

    The knob is alternative ivory in other words acrylic pen blank.

    I was lucky that my sister belongs to a bowls club and got them for nothing

    Dalboy,

    Absolutely stunning!! Local supplier has a little LV Lignum Vitae Turning Blanks - Cormark International
    So much timber, so little time.

    Beautiful Derek.
    Iím glad youíve found a good use for bowls that have been used in an overhanded manner.
    Cheers peter

    Thank you all.

    Peter the balls are no longer used now as they have gone over to the composite made ones now. This will be another competition piece as I am trying to get a few done as I use to always leave it until the last minute to make them.
