    ornament mode

    Here's a couple of ornaments I got finished the other day. The first one is osage with a redbud top. Just to try something a little different I drilled a 3/4" hole in the bottom and plugged it with a piece of I don't know wood. The other I think is spectra-ply that I did some trading for and got about 15 short pieces. The top is spalted maple.

    Great job on the ornaments! I really like that plywood stuff after seeing your ornament and the wine glasses that were posted the other day.

    THEY ARE FOR THE BIRDS!

    Qualifier: Pretty, small, birds. I suppose that I should say, "pretty, tiny birds." Maybe I should be more honest and say "pretty miniature, or pretty, miniscule birds.

    Anyway the "Pretty" part is right on!!!

    Enjoy,

    Great looking birdhouses John. I've been saying for several years now that I'm going to try making those. Even bought a few birds but now I have to get turning. Well done.
