I’m a little late on posting this but I wanted to do something before the end of the year to celebrate the season. Several of the ornaments had already been given away when I did the photos.

No “how to do blog” like Mads is so good at. Most of these ornaments are based on Dale Nish’s book. I whipped up some little pine boxes for the ones I gave to family members. They were as much fun to make as the ornaments.

Best wishes to my LJ friends for the coming year.

Those ornaments do look like they were fun to make. Also good job on presentation boxes.

Hope you have a great new year too. Hope you’ll stop by for a visit again.

Ken,
Well done, the pine boxes are an excellent idea as well. How did you do the lettering on the lids?

Looks good. The work you do inspires me. I am truly impressed with your skill and imagination. I have not had much time for the shop lately but I have a special piece that should be done this weekend.

These are so cool Ken. I especially loved the live edge ones, but they are all nicely turned with pleasing and appropriated shapes. The gift boxes finished them up perfectly.

Lovely little bird house ornaments, Dr. Ken! Is there a story as to why the perches are offset in some? Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!

I remember seeing these really nice looking Christmas ornaments a while ago. I came back here to see them once again. I thought I made a comment about your work. Well I guess it was all in my head! LOL!
Your ornaments are awesome Dr Ken!
