The Nodal Sphere: A Wooden Sculpture In Cherry Burl And Mahogany

The Nodal Sphere, another piece within the Apsis Sculpture series, was a self-imposed exercise in precision woodworking.

The wooden sphere was turned on a wood lathe out of a cherry log burl, while the pedestal and riser were turned of mahogany. The twelve mahogany medallions were fabricated using several different clever machining operations and inserted into bored holes located on the twelve equa-distant nodal points upon the surface of the 4.5 inch diameter cherry burl sphere. Within the medallions are small stainless steel pan-head machine screws. The glass cloche jar was purchased new.
