Well finally finished up Christmas ornaments. 32 mini birdhouses, 35ornaments, 12 bells, and a few snowmen. Here are a 4 newer versions I finished today along with 5 of the others I normally do. These are smaller than the others I have did. Everything is turned on these. The little flame on top, the roof, the body, the perch, the bottom of the birdhouse and the acorn finial on the bottom. I can do about 3 of the other style I turn to one of these but have just done the four. I got the idea from Bob Rosand. He told me to run with them. I thought I would get tired of turning all of it but these are a lot of fun to do and you need to be fairly accurate with your turning of the top and bottom finials to get them to look decent. First one is Cherry, Maple, Walnut. The second is walnut, maple and gaboon ebony. The 3rd and 4th are walnut, maple and redheart.
