"Could you make a base for my Globe?" Of course says I. It was a large celestial globe that had to revolve on three bearings inset into the base. so perhaps not so easy as at first thought. The customer already had a world globe on a base and so the new one needed to be the same shape but as it was larger I had to expand it proportionally. The original was in walnut and I had to laminate two pieces together to get the right height. In the end it wasn't as difficult as I had at first thought. To get the inner curve I used a draughtsmans flexicurve to get the right diameter and made a plywood template from that to shape the inside. The customer was very happy with it which is what is important.
