Bowling trophy

My former college roommates are visiting South Carolina this weekend, and I created this bowling trophy for them to compete for. We were on a bowling league in the late '90s, and did more drinking than we did bowling. None of us really care about bowling, but it was a fun group activity when we were in college. Thought it would be fun to have a little competition and a prize for them to win since they are visiting from all over the country. This trophy uses a combination of acrylic and wood, with stainless standoffs, and a 3D printed bowling pin. I love being able to use multiple making machines to create something custom and fun. Blue House keglers will be back in action this weekend!!!

Beautifully done! Wow! Your posts never disappoint.

Years back I set up a bowling league for my employees. My team was called The Keglers. It was great fun.
