I was busy this year making Christmas ornaments.

Globe Ornaments first picture is one i turned last for some friends our my wife and I.
Hollowed Globes are made of Maple and White Oak finished in poly
Spindles are Walnut finished in poly or beeswax

Angel Ornament is Memosa and finished in beeswax it was a gift for someone at work.

Butterfly and Ladybug ornaments were a special request for our tree
not sure of the wood but colored on the lathe with markers and beeswax

Bell Ornaments
Bells are various woods Walnut Memosa and Pecan(maybe)
Handles were walnut or Spalted Oak

I started turning the bells then did a turning challenge in which I turned the ornament in the last picture. Basically you turn something based on a the requirements then everyone who enters gets randomly picked to receive a piece from the other turners. so mine went to some other person I got one from another turner etc.
