Making a foot reflexology board which can be used as a decoration object..

...or making a decoration object, which can be used as a foot reflexology board .

 I bought some big beechwood globes at the hardware store, and also lots of smaller half spheres.
the major part of work is to split the spheres into half spheres, because it has to be done by hand
 Fortunately the smaller half spheres are available in arts and crafts shops.


 ..sanding
 Then I drilled little holes and put nails into them
 the nailheads have to be clipped off

 ..wood glue on it
 ..and carefully hammered onto the board

 finished! ...it can be treated with natural wood oil, also the edges could do with a little sanding..
on the underside I will affix foamed rubber or felt .
...........like barefoot walking on a pepple beach...
I had the idea a few years ago, and both boards I made then are loved by their owners!
I think I will keep this one
