Oops! I forgot to post the end of this project last week. With that said…
Get out the super glue and keep your fingers apart at all times! Lets get this ornament tutorial wrapped up!
As with most things in life, get a plan in place and get to work. I like to layout my pieces to be assembled in a neat little space. I have three components here (sorry ‘yall, I already glued the finial and collar together) that need to be married.
I find that starting with the top piece is easiest. This way, I’m not pressing a piece into the globe with a delicate finial in my hand… No, I haven’t broken one during assembly. Oh wait, yes I have and it was because I put the finial on first which then broke when I tried to put the top on… I do like to make the tennons fit rather snug. Not “go get a hammer tight”, but you get the idea. I feel that the glue should act as insurance if you will. It’s there if you need it, and you have to pay for it regardless.
Check out the rest of the post here!
Thanks for reading guys, have a great day!
