Here is a Christmas Ornament I made today and is finished with lacquer. This one was made after seeing Larry Hasiak make these. Hollowed out in two halves then glued back together. When you cut the ball you need to go in at a angle for the first 1/4". It is easier to glue back together. Also make a pencil mark so they go back together in the same position. Burned the glue line and then actually made 4 burned lines so I could color strips. Really pretty easy to make and I like the idea of putting colors on them. They have silver stars on the top. The icicle is pretty short because there was a punky knot right in the middle of it and flew off while turning it down even with light cuts. Didn't turn out to bad though.
