Here is a group of SOME of the christmas presents I made this year. There are others but I can not post them yet.(they go to browsers. They are allways browsingLJ’s to see what I am up to)

In the group pic; Top Left; Another Red Oak bowl with inlay banding, Top Center; Pair of spinner tops from spalted pallet wood. Top Right; Small Bell, Bubinga and Maple, Turned wall to 1/16 thick.(scarry) Middle Left; Group of Ornaments, Tried one like Brian(toyGuy) Drilled intersecting holes and hung a star in the center. Turned out nice. Bottom Left; Buisiness Card Holder from spalted pallet wood and Rustic Pencill Holder from Eucalyptus. Far Right Side 2 “card covers” for poker players. Padauk and Maple other is Walnut. Last is a Perfume Bottle Cover. Walnut and Maple.

Had a lot of fun makeing all of these. Thanks for all the ideas from the other LJ’s on here.

Hope you enjoy. Please leave all comments and suggestions. Will post more presents once they are delivered.

Merry Christmas

Looks like you’ve been plenty busy. Fantastic job with the all of them. I like the inlay on the bowl, someday you will have to share that one with me. I am off to Colorado to see my grand kids for Christmas. Have a Happy Holiday.

Wow Scrappy, you have been busy. I like everything you made, but the tree ornaments are my favorite. I keep wanting to make some of these and never seem to get around to it. Maybe next year. Merry Christmas to you and yours too.

Thanks for the comments everyone. The Ornaments were Quite a challenge. The one with the hles I had to make a jig to drill them.

The bowl with inlay strip is really easier then it seems. Just turn your bowl, find an Inlay strip the size you want. With the bowl still on the lathe, cut a detail groove the same width and depth as your inlay. Glue it in place with tape to hold it.(and small clamp at the end joint) Re-Sand and finish. If you can cut a groove in your work (just like any detail) you can do this. I hope more people give it a try. Design from a book called “500 Wood Bowls”

Thanks again.

Karson, 2 more to finish today and ALL of our christmas has come out of my shop this year. No store bought presents.

First time I have had the skills or knowledge to attempt this. Thank You LJ’s for sharing all the great info and ideas. You have made me a much better woodworker. Still along way to go, but I keep striving to improve in everything I do.
