Sometimes Eurythmists [movement teachers in Steiner Schools] ask me for exercise balls turned out of wood. The order was for twelve, so I turned them out of Matai with a diameter of 61mm.
I laid them out just before I wrapped them up for posting.
The matai comes from verandah posts in a big house that was pulled down in Nelson. It is the most beautiful golden matai. All were made between the 21st and 24th of August 2017. On one of the balls you can read 21 8 17. Another says 24 8 17. These are the date codes for their birthdays. Pipes get the same signage. Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.
