Memories for a friend

I posted a keepsake box that was made from a tree a coworker had a little while back.

He called me up and asked me if I would make some more items for him to take to his family this year when he went to visit. Here is what I came up with. 7 ornaments, 4, pens and corkscrew/bottle stopper. He was happy with the outcome and is looking forward to giving them to his family.
The wood is drying out a lot and I fear I may not get too much more out of what I have. But I have been pushing around a stabilization set up and think this would be a good thing for the wood should I get one.

Thanks for looking.

Beautiful, they will make great family memories. Did you turn the metal components too?

Thanks All.
Ron the metal parts this year came from Woodcraft. I have also bought them from CraftSupplies in the past.
