An inside out Christmas ornament I turned for my wife. The wood is pine. I cut four pieces of pine 1-1/4” X 1-1/4” X 8” in length then used hot glue and painters tape to put everything together.

The inside snowman ornament is fairly flat, so I didn’t have to worry about adding the ornament at a later time.

I turned a groove in the outside of the wood, then painted the groove red. Using a chisel and hammer I popped the pieces of wood apart then turned them exactly 180 degrees so the red groove was now on the inside. I then glued the pieces of wood with wood glue and clamped them. After the glue dried, I drilled a hole centered in the top of the four pieces of wood (this is for the fishing line I used to hang the snowman ornament). I then turned the outside of the ornament, sanded the ornament and hit it with high speed friction polish. After parting off the ornament, I added the snowman ornament and threaded the fishing line through the hole I’d drilled earlier. A drop of hot glue secured the ornament fishing line.
