                Those look fantastic Evie;
                Sure is nice to have a variety of hobbies.
                You are very talented and thanks for showing them to us..

                This is an edit;
                I showed them to my wife and she also thought they looked wonderfull. She is a quilter.
                Then on the second look at them I noticed that some are sitting on some pretty nifty looking base's/pedestals that look like lathe turnings.
                Come one now . . . are you holding out on us ? ? Are you also a turner ? ?

                  Evie, I'm in awe.

                  Those tamari balls are so beautiful. Thank you for showing them to us.

                    Those are beautiful!

                    That first one, by itself, somehow makes me think of a beautiful planet.

                    I imagine they are made on top of Styrofoam balls?

                    And as Bill said, the bases are also nice, who turned them?

                    Your talent shines again.

                      Hi Evie, I agree with everyone else, those Tamari balls are beautiful. I would love to know how to make them. So give it up girl, and let us know how you do it.

                              Wow Evie. Those are really neat. After looking at yours I did a little search and found so many sites about this craft. I even found a couple that are really informative on how it's done for those of you who want to give it a try. The first link is a simple how-to for beginners. The second link has a lot of other links buried inside and is probably more for the advanced persons, but there is a link for beginners that my be useful.

                                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
