This ornament is 7 inchs long and is made with maple and paduak. I did not put a sealer on it before sanding so the red migrated into the maple as you can see in the photo. I will learn the hard way. BLO with lacquer.

Not being a turner but have a small lathe, could you post a small how to on how to proceed to build something like this? Really need to know how do you get such a nice sharp point on the end and when you cut it how do you keep it from flying away? Thanks for the look at this nice ornament. Pat
