My wife asked me to make a few ornaments to give as gifts to a few friends. She needed twelve and each one had to be unique. I glued up some walnut and maple and some walnut and cherry and cut them into 4 1/2" long blanks and just started turning. These are the results of a few hours of relaxing at the lathe. I took the picture with my I-phone and i guess the lens was a little dusty so please excuse the fuzzy picture.
