    i have some figured eucalyptus, dry, that i would like some approximately 2" to 3" spheres turned out of. they would need to be fairly well sanded but i'll do the finish. i am willing to pay shipping both ways and pay for the turnings or trade wood for the turnings. attached are some blanks pictures

    Same story with me... happy to do it, but it’s unlikely to happen fast.

    @Mlyle No plans yet. Have seen ones like @jasonb posted. Hoping to build one someday. Would be useful for lots of projects.

    send me enough to make two spheres.....

    a 4 in sphere would have to be at least 6.5 x 6.5

    a 3" sphere would need to be 5 .5 x 5.5 i think...
