Just playing around at the lathe … black walnut finial and icicle with a spalted maple globe. The stand is about 9” top to bottom. The little Christmas tree inside the ornament is 1 1/8” tall. Finish is spray lacquer (rattle can).

You play very well with wood. Are you going to decorate your tree with these ornaments?

Squared the stock and used a Forstner bit to drill the holes.

Nope … these are going to family members as Christmas gifts.

Very nice selection of wood and turning.

Did you make the stand? I have been looking for ideas on how to smoothly bend the wire and would appreciate any ideas.

Yes. I made a simple jig out of a piece of 1-1/4” dowel and a nail. I bent the small hook where the ornament hangs with a pair of needle nose pliers, hooked that end on the nail, and pulled it around the dowel. Easy-peasy.
