DIY Gazing Bowling Balls and stands

bookjunky4life(5 Central IL)March 9, 2013

The stands are made from oil field pipe which we just had laying around the farm. The two stands on the left were over five foot tall, so I drove them in the ground over two feet with a sledge hammer (not easy!). I have to paint my bowling balls yet.

Love, love, love, the pipes! Those would look awesome with Bowling Balls covered in roofing nails. (something I've always wanted to do, but haven't yet...)

I'm painting the stands black and the balls metallic silver.

Wow, I saw the finished ones 1st! They came out fantastic! Wondered how cheap plastic was holding up BB's that is great recycling!! You mentioned doing a couple more! That will be nice also could be used to keep people off area you don't want them on. If you get extreme winds there you might drill holes deeper into balls & stick rebar in that will go into ground a little but would keep balls on their pedestals assuming pipes are hollow! Jan
