Carpentry: Hole in one

So I had a few pieces of wood lying around from the recent Ikea-hack ball-pit project and also found a single golf ball from my first golf outing. Decided to do something out of it with the tools/skills at hand. Inspiration was from the numerous wood-working videos available on youtube. This by no means in my original idea.

Pieces of wood from the Ikea HEMNES day bed slats.

Glued together 2 sets of 5 pieces of wood.

Then glued those 2 sets together.

Sanded the block to kind of make it even on all sides.

Marked and started carving out the wood in the center from the 4 broader sides.

rounded off the edges.

heated water to boiling hot and then immersed the wood block in for 5 minutes so that it becomes soft enough for the golf ball to slide in. Then just air dry for the wood to regain its strength and shape.

A little more sanding and shaping and then finally applied some cherry stain.
