My next door neighbor asked me if I could make her a couple of those little “Christmas tree ornaments like last year”. Seems she wants to take a couple out to BC to her daughter that just married and moved out there.

So of course I made a couple for her. The globe one is 2” by 3 3/4” Spalted maple and cherry. The birdyhouse is 3” by 3” spalted maple and a piece of red cedar for the roof. Both hollowed out of course.

It has been a while since you made any of these? Both are very nice, but the second red hat one is a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

I love those little birdhouses. i need to try to make some sometime.

I was just going over your work and i see you do some ornaments that are “hollowed” in the sense that you cut holes with the forstner and items hang in the middle, or the hole in your mini bird houses. How do you handle the lathe tools to make sure they don’t catch in those holes? I know the holes have to be drilled before turning. Do you just use a bigger lathe tool (like for the bird house) so they don’t catch? what about the hollowed ornaments.

i’m interested to hear your advice

In answer to question…

Not that tricky to do….Short answer…..... Turn fast with sharp tools.

Check out this article on making the ornament you enquire about.
