Based on Bernie's tutorial (a tutorial of legend, by the way) this prototype was born. It is not finished or sanded or anything for that matter; just turned. "Sneeking-up-on" is new verbage for "sharpen your tools and go slow!!!" Now that the basic idea is in hand, Christmas turning is upon us all!! (sorry Stu )
My nephew is waiting for his "orniment".
Many thanks' Bernie, this is a long term gig for many Christmas's to come
