“An ornament a day, keeps the doctor at bay”

It just not right, me having so much fun making these little things…...... Off the birdhouse ones now and moving to the inside -out technique….... only my version !

Brian, this is another nice ornament. What woods did you use on this one?

I can see that you are having fun but, if you are going to fill the tree, you had better get busy. There are only 55 more days to Christmas. :)

Love those ornaments. Looks like fun, so I’ll have to give them a try. Thanks for sharing.

Great ornament. Love the design with the tree in the center. Would also like to know the woods.

Did you “Inside out” this, or did you bore holes in the blank then turn? Would like to give this a try myself.

Keep up the inspirational work.

Scrappy: This is been done with the boring holes technique. I tried a inside out, but just can’t stand waiting… LOL. One of the reasons I like the lathe in the first place.

Woods used: Main body is Manitoba Maple (Box Elder for my American friends) The finial and top piece are of Chechen. The tree came from a dollar store (pack of 10) and the finish is spray can Krylon clear gloss.

Nice job Brian. Maybe you could call this “the reverse inside-out technique”
