Hitching Post Made From Golf Balls
“I live on the north side of a local golf course,” says Cliff Gleason, Casselton, N.D. “I have to pick up six or seven golf balls in my yard every day. I thought I could use them for something interesting.”
“I used to raise quarter horses, so I decided to make a hitching post out of them,” he says.
Then, it was on to collect a couple of wheels off an old John Deere press drill for additional decoration. Gleason painted a bunch of the golf balls, drilled holes in the middle, and put a runner rod through them.
The front porch has four wooden posts supporting the overhanging roof, so that’s where he began.
“I ran two boards just over 9 ft. long between two of the posts, separated by about 2 ft.,” he says. “I ran two boards vertically between those two boards.”
The three runner rods through the golf balls were fastened horizontally in the middle square. The two press drill wheels are in each of the outside squares.
“I built this about 3 years ago,” he says. “It only took me about 3 days of fiddling to get it done. I put the golf balls out in the summertime and take them indoors during the winter.”
