Via Sellsius, we’re introduced to Tom Chudleigh, creator and builder of Free Spirit Spheres, unconventional wooden balls that can be used for healing, meditation, photography, canopy research or leisure.
The wood spheres are made of two laminations of wood strips over laminated wood frames. The outside is then finished and covered with clear fiberglass. The result is a beautiful and very tough skin. Fiberglass shells are also available. The skins are waterproof and strong enough to take the impacts that come with life in a dynamic environment such as the forest. The structural integrity of a sphere and the ability to move and absorb shock loads combine to produce a robust accommodation package.
Contact Tom and friends through the Free Spirit Sphere website.
