This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Roundwood Working.

As with the chain carving, this is more of a conversation piece than a useful item. Still, it is an excellent project to demonstrate your control of the knife when carving detail work as well as forming an aesthetically pleasing finished product.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Carve a ball in a cage where the ball moves freely.
Must be carved from a single piece of wood.
Use only manual hand tools.

To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Show the wood and tools to be used
- Show the roughed-in cage and ball prior to the sphere being freed
- Show video of the ball rolling in the cage or a series of images showing that it moves freely.
Self destruct mode activated. Instructions for deactivation encoded in this tiny ad.
