This is a set of skittles I made for my son. I looked around for some first, but found none of the right size or weight. The skittles are made of Ash and are 20% smaller than regulation. The Beech wood ball is 6" in diameter and made by joining two pieces of wood and mounting the block on a lathe. The skittles are made of 4" stock, also turned on a lathe. The set is then finished with oil and wax to form a durable coating........A good distraction for the kids this Summer.
