    Default Salt and Pepper set

    I have quite a few bowls balls so I set myself a task of making a salt and pepper set from just one of them. They measure 4 1/4" one way and 5" the other as they are not true circles, by cutting one in half I managed to get each pot from those and now they measure 2 1/4" each. The pots are Lignum Vitae The base is from Oak as is the support for the white sphere which is made from Beech painted, this represents the Jack in the game.

    This is going to my sister as a thank you for all the bowls she gave me

    This set has gone back to the Bowls Club that gave me 18 of them as they are no longer used because they now use the composite ones as I should imagine is the same where you are. It was just a thank you for them, the least I could do, The Chairman of the club wanted them but as it is for the club they are going to raffle or auction them for the club.
