Woodturning a Sphere

I have wood turned my first sphere from a piece of sequoia wood. I started by turning a sphere from a spindle. Then I remounted the sphere at a 90゚ angle to the first axis and turned in the new direction. Then I rotated the sphere again another 90゚ and repeated this process several times moving to each of the three axes getting closer and closer to a perfect sphere.

  1. There is another, even faster way to get round. Use a drinking glass or other perfect circle of a smaller diameter than the globe radius. Place it on the globe as you are turning, even before you remove the ends. It will show you the high and lows very quickly, and accurately. Makes turning a globe very fast. And try sanding sealer on redwood/sequoia of get a more even finish.

  2. I've got an old video saved in my favorites of a guy making wood spheres by hand for puppet eyeballs. He got it done with something like a homemade hole saw which he held in hand and used to take the high spots off a cube similar to what you've done here. What I found most interesting is that you could make spheres of a much larger diameter than the hole saw tool you were working with.
