Wood soccer ball lantern
« on: September 15, 2020, 11:02 AM »
Thought I would challenge myself with angles. This is a Kumiko lantern in the shape of a soccer ball, football for the Europeans.

Cheers,
JC

Wow, really fantastic.
Congratulations. Skill wise not sure I could pull that off. Patience wise not a chance.

Simply incredible, don't know how to put it otherwise.

Thank you for sharing!

What I would like to know, if you don't mind sharing, what type of glue/adhesive did you use to attach the single units/frames to each other? Some wood super glue w/ activator type adhesive? Or regular wood glue and then jigs/masking tape to hold the already glued parts together?


Kind regards,
Oliver

Hi Oliver.
I used Titebond No Run, No Drip wood glue and a lot of little spring clamps to hold the hexagons together.

Cheers.

That is awesome.  Would be fun to try to make one.  Could you possibly walk us through the process you used for the individual ‘windows’ and then assembly of them overall?  Looks like the five-sided units are partially cut at angles where they meet adjacent ones.

Fantastic work!  Thanks for sharing.  Hope we can all learn more on how you pulled this off.

And one final question - how many hours?

Stunning, JC!  Stunning!  I really like the look with the light on.
