, I want to make sure I understand the process ,,,,(in making a
sphere)....before I spend all the time carving the convex
surface. Do you think that this type of piece would be
available through a lapidary supplier?
Possibly, though they use pieces of pipe to hold the slowly
forming sphere. However, if you really want a convex surface get
a local woodturner to whip one (or more) up in hard or soft wood
as you choose. it would only take him a few minutes. I’d do it
myself if you weren’t 13000 odd miles away! But cheers anyway.
