and if you Make one of these I would love to see how yours turned out So to get started on my golf ball in a block of wood I’ve got a block of wood here and this is actually A piece of bass wood that I picked up at I believe it was Hobby Lobby or hobby town it was one of those
Hobby stores where they sell these for pretty cheap They sell them in 2 by 2 inches by 2 inch widths And I really wanted this to be 1 – 3/4″ you can Play around with the dimensions on this this is what I settled with and I think this works pretty well So if you can you’ll want to trim both sides down So that it’s 1 – 3/4″ by 1 – 3/4″ and I decided to make Mine a lenght of 5 inches but you could certainly play With that too. To get started I struck two lines 3/4 of an inch on both sides just to give me a frame Of reference of where and how much I was going to Cut out of the wood and I did it on my both sides I did it on this side as well as this side And then another tip too I found the center point In my wood so I when I’m lining this up on the drill press It’ll make it easier to find the center point on My block of wood so I’m going to head over to the Drill press next and start drilling this out So I’ve got my block of wood here and it’s looking Pretty good what I’m going to do now is take some Sand paper and sort of clean it up a little bit The drill press leaves some little ridges and I want to smooth that out
So I’ve got my block of wood all sanded down and I think it looks pretty good Next up I’m ready To put my golf ball in there but first I’m going put it in some hot water not quite boiling but It’s definitely hot and that will cause the wood to Expand just enough that I can pop this in and hopefully Not break it and then I’ll be all done
All right let’s give this a shot Hey lookie there and it’s not that hot
All right where there it is the wood is still a little wet
But it went in just fine and its already contracting And you can amaze your friends by making one of these So if you haven’t already subscribed to my youtube Channel be sure to do that and also be sure to Check out WoodLogger.com where I’ll post more detailed Pictures and information about how I made this and I’ve Got plenty of other projects to that I’ve

  1. For those wondering about the size bit he used, I did some calculations. If the 'rails' were left square, the minimum bit width would need to be 1-3/16" to cross-sectional fit the golf ball. This leaves rails 9/16" wide. However, since the insides are sanded down a little, my guess is that he used a 1-1/4" to 1-3/8" bit. If using the 1-3/8" bit, that leaves 3/16" rails, which is probably about as thin as you'd want to make it in order to avoid breaking. I'd probably start with the 1-1/4".

  2. In England UK our golf balls are 1 5/8" diameter so I need to use the full 2" width of the block otherwise there would not be enough wood left on the sides. Size is everything so I suggest measurements would be useful information. Enjoyed the vid though.

  3. В чем прикол этой игрушки? Для грудного ребенка разве что забава.

  4. 0:08 – A promise is a commitment by someone to do or not do something. As a noun promise means a declaration assuring that one will or will not do something. As a verb it means to commit oneself by a promise to do or give. Source – Wikipedia. I think that you mean that you assure us that it is in there.

  5. I am trying to make a walking cane, and I would like to put a crystal on the top, like you did here, inside a carved hole, so can I do it the same way, or do I need to saw off the top and glue it back together?

    J'avais l'habitude aussi de mettre les balles de golf dans les bois..

  7. disappointing. my grandpa made a chain out of single piece of wood, i was hoping this would be something similar

  8. The golf ball went in pretty much how I thought it would but I had to watch anyhow because it's still a neat trick. Apparently, 5,000,035 other folks thought the same.

  9. Whittling a ball into the cage is more unique because its all the same piece of wood. I whittled one with the chain links attached also. It was called the ball n chain. Roy Underhill from Maine PBS Was on TV with this project

  10. banal , ball kälten geht auch , oder im wasser aufwärmen. was kann man von einem ami erwarten ? aber der bube ist der tollste . so werden deppen als klug berühmt . naja

  11. How long does it take to dry the wood. I mean really dried thoroughly and not just dried to touch and how to speed the drying process?

  12. I had a classmate that carved things like these and carved the ball (wood) in place. Smaller though. Pretty cool.

  13. Once upon a time in a bygone era (when I was a kid) when milk got delivered to your home in glass bottles the trick was to put an egg in the glass bottle

  14. Ok, I didn't expect that. I figured it was either finished with a glued-on piece or you put the whole thing in a pressure chamber to (temporarily) reduce the size of the golf ball. 🙂

  15. Why would anyone take the time to hang dry wall, make beautiful drywall joints, sand them and the screw head recesses smooth in preparation for a beautiful paint application, then just go ahead and mount all your stuff with that wall as is? Or could you not afford an $8 can of paint, or (5) minutes to roll it on, or is unpainted drywall compound the new cool?  Or would that necessitate a drywalllogger.com?

  16. Another way to do it is to place the golf ball into the soil on top of a tree seed and wait until the tree grows around it, and… Well, you'll have to work out the rest by yourself.

  17. When I was a kid, back in the '50s, an old fellow had crutches with several pretty, colorful "captive" marbles encased like that. Fascinating to a kid, like me! A similar thing my dad made once was a Coca Cola bottle with a hole drilled all the way through and a carved wooden arrow penetrating through both sides. In that case the arrow head (or the carved fletching) had been soaked and compressed down to permit insertion, then expanded again when dried.

  18. The topics covered in this wood working book “Bαzοmο Tdy Plαn” (Google it) ranges from wood types to tool types as well as uses. Some other matters range from the different types of wood and their distinct levels of difficulty when it comes to managing them. This book has been very useful and is a good one for somebody just getting into woodworking. .
