Lately I've been getting a lot of emails asking how I make my garden balls. I always tell people that I never just make one from start to finish, and I always have a bunch of projects started on my work bench at once.
These are a few that I have going on right now. You can see that I use a lot of different items to keep the balls balanced for a flat top work surface.
I'm always trying to find tricks to keep the glass from sliding off the sides of the balls,
or in this case, the birdbath. Having a small flat work surface makes it easier for me to add a few pieces here and there. Since I almost always have at least one helper working with me on my workbench, being able to work for short periods of time is key for me.
