For the last few years I have been making Christmas ornaments to give my brothers, sister, and friends. This year I was inspired by a YouTube video showing a guy making ornaments from tree branches. The branches I used were from one of our Lodge Pole Pine trees that blew down in a recent wind storm. The diameter ranges from 3 to 3.5 inches. I cut them on a 45 degree bias. They range from a 1/4” to 3/8” thickness. The patterns are a modification from a Steve Goode ornament design. I cut the designs with the wood fairly green and then soaked the finished product in Danish oil and hung them to dry for a few days.
Thanks for looking. It feels great to get some time in the shop again!
