Turning American Ninja Warrior Training Gear

American Ninja Warrior Hand GripsMay also be viewed via YouTube, Vimeo, or FaceBook. Best Right Here.

My granddaughter watches American Ninja Warrior. She asked me to turn some training gear: 4 2.5″ balls, 2 3″ balls, 2 2″ pistons, and 2 truncated cones. Who can refuse a 7 year old granddaughter?

I turned them from Titan cedar. The balls are finished with only 80 grit sandpaper and beeswax and mineral oil mix. The others were not sanded and left unfinished.

    What is the mixture proportions for your bees wax and mineral oil?

    • Alan says:

      I use 4 oz of beeswax to 1 pint of mineral oil.
      The ratio I first learned was 25% to 75% but that mixes liquid and dry measures.
      This is a practical expression of the ratio for a firm paste.
      From this you can vary to change the consistence.

      If you use unrefined beeswax, the bonus is a nice honey scent.
