The GLOBALL has been soaking in PEG for 58 days now. What is PEG you ask? Why it’s Polyethylene Glycol of course! An odorless, colorless, non-toxic goo that you’ve been smearing on your body and putting into your cavities for years. Toothpastes, mouthwashes, deodorants and yes, even lube are all made of Polyethylene Glycol. What PEG does is replace the water in the wood with itself. That way, when the ball comes out and dries, since it won’t have anymore moisture in it, it won’t expand or contract with changes in temperature or humidity and therefore won’t have any cracking or splitting.
So, if you needed an update on Oliver’s project, know I’m busy lubing my ball. Picture below!
