    Looks great, Mike!

    How are the golf balls retained on the shelves? Did you just drill an appropriately sized hole, or do you have a 'specialty' bit that cuts an indentation?

    Hi Jim
    I used a 3/4" cove router bit set up in the drill press.
    Works great

    Very nice display. Wish I could come help you build them. I could learn from a master.

    What a great looking display, hope you get the order. Great idea on the cove cutter, hadn't thought about using those in the DP.

    Nicely done Mike should be a 'gimme' on the order for sure!

    Very nice, Mike. Are the balls glued in place?
