    Littlest Angel Ornament

    Curly Birdseye Maple, 1 ½” high x 1 3/8” diameter, base hollowed out to 1/16”, sanded to 400, lacquer finish and a small feather to complete the look. In case you are wondering - I did not paint eyes on the Angel - it's all natural.

    Great job Steve...did you come up with the idea for the angel as you turned it once you saw the eyes or was it just blind luck?

    Thanks Jeff! The wood is actually curly birdseye and was full of little eyes but the more I turned - the fewer eyes remained. This just happened to be what was left - so, I lucked out!

    Really looks neat Steve especially since you caught the eyes at the right place.
    cheers
