I now have so many I needed to build a display stand. Sitting on the work bench was a small discarded bowl from one of my first attempts at turning. It was a bowl, then a funnel….. now a Christmas tree… just added some 1/16” music wire and a plug in the centre..

The following pictures will show the ornaments and the stand, I have made so far this year. Most of the ornaments have already been posted, but there are some new ones. These things are like Lays potato chips, you just can’t eat one…......

Pictures rotated 120 degrees between each shot, to show all ornaments.

Fantastic group of ornaments. Love the hanger also. Nice way to display your works of art year round.

Keep it up.
