This is my first Christmas ornament. Trying something new. Turned the oustide and hollowed the ball which is made from Orange firewood. Icicle finial is made from Camphor and the top is made from Sweet Gum. Just need to get a brass loop screw to put the wire through so it will hang on the tree. All pieces sanded to 600 and finished with Myland’s. The 2nd pic is with the flash on and closer and was meant to give a better pic of the grain, but didn’t work out to well beings you can see the grain a lil’ better in the 1st pic. I love the grain in the Camphor. I had fun doing this project today. Broke a few finials in the process but thats always a part of learning, right? I see more of these in my future, especially around Christmas as my wife is a Christmas fanatic. Let me know what you think. Feedback is always welcome.
