Yes, balero in this case refers to the cup-and-ball game.

that's what google didn't know, like you i had to check a dictionary ;)

about the work in progress may be you should move it right away
because at this point it's not comfortable either for Alan who gets comments in between ,or for the potential participants who might get lost

no ?

EDIT from ta0: Actually, balero is also the word we use in Uruguay. I did check the dictionary but for the English word: cup-and-ball or ball-and-cup?  :D

Very much enjoying the pictures - and narrative - from such a gifted craftsman.
A real work of art.

Paid Larry for 1 ticket, please issue me a number.

Good luck to all.

Now that the tip is complete, there is only one thing left to do. Spin It!
It plays so well! It just keeps going and going. Wish I could keep this one.
The finish on the top is pure beeswax. I heated the entire top with a heat gun until the wax melted into the wood.
Remember that ring I cut from ring #2? It is now the base and has a felt bottom.
I also needed a tool for starting and tightening/loosening the reversible nut (I usually use a chop stick). One end has a small round end to hold the nut and the other is a paddle to keep the nut from turning. It was cut from the same wood as the top.
The base and tightening tool are finished with tung oil.

Good luck to the winners of all the prizes.






Thanks for all the kind words and putting up with my barrage of photos. I hope they made some sense. It was a fun project.

8) 8) 8) 8)

There are only 9 tickets remaining and I have the feeling they may be gone by tomorrow . . . (hey, I am tempted to buy more).
Just $10 gives you the chance of winning this (or one of the great consolation prizes).

I'd like to have the final two if they are not gone already.

I have a check in hand, but need to review where/how to send it.

The check in the mail...thanks Larry!

Cheers!
