A couple of turned Christmas ornaments that will be gifts for family members.

These are spalted maple and black walnut, measuring about 8 inches from the top of the finial to the bottom of the icicle. The globes are about 2 inches in diameter. The little Christmas trees inside are 1-1/8 inches in diameter and 1-1/4 inches tall.

The stands were turned from red oak scraps, with 3/32” brass brazing rod for the hangars.

I have looked at these several times and really like them. It would be interesting to know how you made them.

Sorry … I didn’t take any pictures and don’t have anything in writing.

Correct! No chucks, spur drives, jigs, etc. Just trapped the blank between the lathe spindle and the live center. Funny how a little piece of red oak turning at 1400rpm can shake an 800 lb lathe!

That looks impossible… unless you stuck the Inside Piece up through the bottom of Outside piece…

Awesome!
