Where would you get rubber bands... that big? that wouldn't snap after a little while? You should play catch with it too :D it would be funz

At staples and they do snap some times.

How long that take to make i worked on one that is bigger than a baseball in 30 minutes.

About 24 hrs If i was working non stop.

Sorry for cheating but thats my way! Sorry for the horrible picture quality too my camera's battery died and i had to use my web cam to take pictures.

yeah im making one right now and it takes forever to knot the rubberbands the right way so they dont fall apart

I'm a cheater, but I enjoy it. I use an old ball from a mouse. It adds a ton of weight and you have yourself a perfect sphere to work with from the start. Just do NOT throw it at anyone without they knowing it. The steel ball on the inside can pack a punch even with three or four inches of rubber band.

go ahead im going to the party

Does Not Compute (author)2008-03-29

To make it completely with rubber bands (I've done it, my ball is about 2-3 inches in diameter), you must knot rubber bands and be very patient. It looks much neater, and you also have a whole bunch of rubber bands handy. I should really continue my ball...
