Shortly before the Christmas holiday, I would come home from work and do one of these ornaments. Not much time for anything then. The wood came from chair rungs, broom handles, paint brush handles, warped dowels and branches. The inside out turning was a table leg and the tree inside it was a paint brush handle. They were fun to make, were skill improvers and help fill the need to work the wood. Oh, the little eyelets on the top of most of the ornaments is twisted 20 gauge copper wire and CA glued in.
-- Never board, always knotty, lots of growth rings
