    Football

    Made this for my son and his team to give to the coach. The small town I live in just got a football program this year.

    Made of walnut and cypress. The size is very close to a junior high ball.Click image for larger version.

    Wow, I never knew they played school football in Texas.










    That's just too cool, Shane. The proportions looks spot on.

    Shane,
    That's a great gift to start off the new program! If I were the new Coach, I wouldn't know whether to keep it proudly displayed on my desk, or keep it safely at home on my trophy mantle.

    Great job.

    Very nice ball!
    I'm longing to make one.
    In my search of ideas I found out this site (sorry it's in French, but pictures are universal).
    http://www.vayssade.fr/ballonsrugby.htm
    The rugby ball looks your football one.
    It may give you ideas for making new ones!
    For the one who can read on the same site there is a step-bystep howto.
    This gentleman is also making soccer balls.
