My first Christmas tree ornament turned on the drill press. The wood is Walnut. I drilled a hole in one end, put a 1/4 inch hex bolt in the end, cut off the head of the bolt and chucked it up in the drill press. I put a large carriage bolt through one of the drill press table slots and tightened it with washers and bolts. Then I used one of my 3 chisels to shape it. I sanded it from 120 to 400 then used steel wool for a final finishing. Mineral oil brought out the grain. I drilled a hole through the hex bolt stem and then cut off the excess and rounded the end of the bolt shaft with the grinder (wheel then steel brush). I put fishing line through the hole and it’s ready for the tree. I got the idea from Nick Ferry on You tube. Thanks for looking.
