Sawdust Girl Sandra created some large wooden spheres as a decorative accent for her home. She was inspired by iron spheres that cost from $165 to $225 per sphere. Ouch! Sandra on the other hand made two for only $5. How? She ripped thin strips from a 1×3 and then tried her hand at wood bending for the first time. Sandra says it turned out to be quite easy and saved her a truckload of cash!
