A normal pool ball is made from polyester or phenolic resin, which makes them hard and durable. But the idea of playing billiards with metal balls intrigues us. My Mechanics rises to the challenge with this impressive stainless steel and brass 8-ball he made from scratch. We’d love to see a complete set of balls made this way.

Frank Howarth knows a thing or two about making spheres, so we couldn’t help but be transfixed as we watched him turn an ordinary block of walnut wood into a beautifully-smooth replica of an 8-ball. The round clamp he built for holding it on the CNC table is ingenious.
We’ve seen pool champion Florian “Venom” Kohler work his magic in miniature, now watch as he literally takes aim at the hyperactive Dude Perfect dudes, then turns in a epic round of trick shots bouncing balls from table to table, across the room, and always hitting his target.
