or low or anywhere else on the tree you would like. I made all of these ornaments for my coworkers, they are all made out of wood that I have collected from work from various damaged or pruned trees. The woods include: Red Cedar, Dogwood, Holly, Cherry and a few more that I can not remember. All of the parts came from the Mini Hanging Ornament kits from WoodCraft, though in most of them I used a standard length tube from my 7mm pen kits.
These were a lot of fun to make and I got a chance to play with a lot of different tools on my lathe. I am looking forward to using some of the techniques on future projects.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Some great looking ornaments. What is the length of these items. It’s hard to judge the size.

Thanks for the comments.
Karosn, they are almost all made using 7mm pen tubes and average about 2”. The exception is the small brown one in the 3rd pic, it is made from a mini tube.
