    seg christmas orniment

    After looking at all the christmas orniment i've been seeing lately, i thought i'd try one. this is what it came out like. it has 42 pieces of wood. The wood is maple, purple hart, and mahogany. Finish is just rattle can laquar. I know my finials need to get thinner but maybe next time.
    Thanks, and all comments as always welcome

    What? Finials? Oh brother. The only improvement needed is the camera operator and for some reason...the hook doesn't compliment the piece. I know that sounds dumb but IMHO.

    It looks great to me. I think that the hook might be a little big, but I don't know what to use that would be smaller or better. The work is great.

    Nice job, Steve. I agree with you on the finial (or icicle), but it's better than any I've made.

    thanks all.As far as the hook i was looking for something smaller,and i know i have some small eye hooks.They are in a plastic box with all the pic frame hangers and such,just couldn't find them. will look again to day.If i can't find them i'll have to go get some more.Ithink i'll get some small ribbon also, as that sounds like a good idea also.Vaughn is it common to call the bottom final a icicle?
    thanks Steve
