I have few of these left, but it’s time to start thinking of Christmas projects again! These are, of course, from the Bonnie Klein designs of chatterwork on tops. They’ve been a big hit, and I’m about to start stock piling some more. This year I’m hoping to avoid the last-minute rush of below-freezing turnings all through December to make the deadline.
So, what are you planning for holiday gift giving?

These are wonderful gifts for all ages! They look more like confectionary than toys.

Very nice Barb! I love the colors. If you have the equipment it would be nice to see a video how you make these. I plan on making segmented salad bowls out of madrone, since I have a ton of it! I hope to get started next month.

Brett, I’m not equipped to do a video, but I’m sure there are You-Tube videos on line if you search, especially for Bonnie Klein. She’s written a book showing this, too: Classic Woodturning Projects With Bonnie Klein
