    Acorn style ornaments

    These are fun to make and are good for Christmas presents. The tops are Western Cedar, the bodies are; Black Willow, Sweet Gum and one Hackberry. The finials are Holly except for one Sweet Gum (two are dyed black). Willow and Cedar are too soft for easy turning but light weight is a virtue for ornaments. Comments and Critiques welcome.

    Great ornaments Bernie. I say that or something similar every time you post pics. The reason I do, is because I like your works and I am glad you post the pics.

    Enjoy,
