Our celebration this Christmas was especially wonderful because we celebrated with the newest addition to our family — our granddaughter, who was just 10 weeks old. I turned this Christmas ornament for her — a bit delicate, but, IMO, appropriate for a delicate and beautiful baby. The main body of the ornament is made from curly maple. The cap, center bell, and the bottom finial were made from bubinga. Everything was finished with friction polish.
