Orb of Foilium (Japanese Polished Foil Ball)

NAME YOUR PROJECT! The Orb of Foilium

What is it, and what does it do? It is a big ball of scrunched-up aluminum foil. One roll is 200 square feet of foil. It doesn’t do anything, but it is cool to look at, and it remarkably heavy. It is about five inches in diameter.

why are you making it (optional) I saw folks online making these, and was just curious about how difficult/time consuming it might turn out to be. Not too bad, as it turns out. About 6 hours total time.

post some pictures, and/or build log that sucker RIGHT HERE!
update your post with it’s progress!


I watched a guy make one of these. Then he ran it through his shredder.

It would make my $49 shredder choke and puke.
