              would probably take me 10 days to do a small one of those lol

                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.

                                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
