We are getting ready for Christmas art shows and had a lot of fun turning these Christmas ornaments. The wood is resin cast Maple Burl (green), resin cast Khamphi Burl (larger purple) and Red Mallee Burl. They all sold in the last two days, so we are wishing I would have made a lot more! Check out BangleGuy.com for more info. Happy Turning!

Eric these are very nice. I am guessing they are your castings? Did you turn the metal parts yourself

Beautiful BangleGuy! Another opportunity to save cut offs and transform them into heirlooms. Bob, the kits are on his website. Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful work.

How does the ornament attach to the tree or fireplace mantel?

A hole through the top of the finial would be nice, I think?

Thanks all! Yes, the inspiration came from all of the center cut offs I had lying around. I do a lot of resin casting for my bangle blanks, and now I have a great use for them.

Waho, there is a small 0.05” hole in the top finial and you can insert a standard Christmas ornament hook, or tie a nice piece of gold thread into a knot and slip through for hanging. The beauty of this design is that it threads together, so you turn your wood and simply assemble the finial kit. No gluing, no mess.

Those are attractive ornaments. The shapes and wood colors are stunning as well as the finish.
