CELESTIAL INSPIRATION

The planets. You can own them. These wood balls with holes drilled in them (but not through them) were meant to be planets and moons for a solar system model. Do it yourself. You and your kids will learn a lot more than if you bought a kit that does all the thinking for you. Some balls are painted bright colors, some are varnished natural wood. Most have at least one 1/4" hole, some have smaller holes. They could also be joints and/or finials for some kind of dowel construction. Nothing to stop you from drilling new holes for a truly custom project.
