Beautiful! Did you glue them up and turn, or turn them independantly and then assemble?

Great job on your first ornament. I really like to turn this style of ornament. Thanks for posting.

Nice job on your first. Soon there will be a second, third, and fourth. Then your family and friends will see them…
My first ornament led to 25 more. Have fun!
