Woodturning an 8-ball from a chunk of walnut

A good craftsman has very few limits in the workshop. In this video, Frank Howarth will give you a great idea of how far you can go with a piece of walnut when gifted with skills and creativity. Frank has previously created the “Deathstar” from Star Wars in Bamboo and spent 3 years making a bowl of maple tree.

A large part of the project in this video was figuring out how to hold the sphere on the CNC table securely. This makes the process almost more impressive than the result. It is a real pleasure to see the master work.
