Here is my first try at making an inside-out turn. It came out better than I thought it would still not what I want but I like it. Pictures are finished product then starting with the blankes I used.

Great job.

I’ve done some inside out turning to make lamps. I never thought of making Christmas ornaments this way. I may have to try this.

I was wondering if there was any “trick” used when gluing up the 4 pieces of stock so that they were separable without band sawing later… eg. a piece of paper in between.

@ SawTooth1953 – When I first glued them together I used CA glue just one bead down for each block then used packing tape for added support… They came apart easily with a dead blow mallet one hit…
