Over the past year I have been making Christmas Tree Ornaments whenever I run out of other ideas of other fun things to make. I thought this would be the time to post them. First of all I like to use whenever possible wood from tree limbs that have fallen on our property, I even have neighbors that bring over their tree limbs. This is a tremendous way to utilize wood that would otherwise be burned or end up in the land fill. On occasion I also use exotic wood depending on my mood at the time.
Photo #1, these are 8 ½” to 6 ½” in length, material used is Red Cedar, Maple, Cherry and White Birch.
Photo #2, these are all approximately 6 ½” in length, material used is of course various Sea Shells that we either found or bought last year in Florida, Maple, Cherry and Black Walnut.
Photo #3, these are 6” to 4 ½” in length, material used is of course Sea Shells either bought or found in Florida, Maple, Paduk and Black Walnut.
Photo #4, these are 5” to 3” in length, material used is once again Sea Shells either bought or found in Florida, Cherry, Paduk, Maple and Black Walnut.
Photo #5, these are 6 ½” to 4 ½” in length, material used is Red Cedar, Black Walnut, Tiger Maple, Maple and Apple Wood.
Photo #6 these are 7” to 2” in length, material used is Cocobolo, Honey Locust, Maple, and White Birch. This is also my first attempt at turning anything inside out and was lots of fun to do.
Finish on all is several coats of gloss Lacquer.
All Comments good or bad are appreciated; I find that I learn the most when my friends are honest…
Thanks for looking!!
