Turning a Wood Baseball and Stand
By Marvin Stoltzfus

For: Intermediate Turners


This project tutorial will go over the steps to create a wooden baseball. I will be turning the sphere with the tool that I invented and is now being distributed by Carter Products under the name of Perfect Sphere tool. I’ll wood burn the sphere to resemble a baseball cover and lacing. I will also turn and embellish the remaining part of the wood blank to be our baseball stand.
