As a wood turner, I can see anything that is round and know that it can be made in wood. This pokemon go craze made the pokeball a great challenge.
This was a project where I challenged myself to get it done quickly, so all the measurements are done by eye and the sphere isnt perfect but you get the idea.
It is a simple project for anyone with a lathe and drill press. The timbers I used for this project are red cedar, american walnut and jacaranda
Sizes 75mm x 75mm x 35mm
Mark your center on the 2 pieces. I did this by going corner to corner. With a 8mm drill bit, drill a hole in the center. This prepares it for the screw chuck on the lathe. Sand the face surface on a disc sander (I have one on a face plate for the lathe)
