The expensive seeming price of the 800 mm balls is a result of the relationship between low demand and extremely high tooling costs. Balls in this size are normally only available as special orders, which are even more expensive, i.e., much more expensive.
Treatment: Polystyrene foam shaped pieces can be cut by using a HOT WIRE CUTTER and glued with polystyrene compatible glues like TESA ALL-PURPOSE GLUE or UHU POR.
Beechwood balls that have no drill hole, that are partially drilled or drilled completely through, as well as hemispheres that have no drill hole, are all available at Modulor. These balls can be used for a variety of purposes: as the crown of architectural model trees (partially drilled), as marbles (not drilled), in the creation of jewellery (drilled through), for mobiles, for making simple childrens toys and much more.
Our balls are turned from stove dried European beechwood and subsequently sanded so that a relatively smooth surface is achieved.
