    Pierced Christmas Ornaments........???

    Or are they called "Hollow" Christmas Ornaments?

    The ones that are glued up, turned, split apart, reversed, glued up again, then turned again....?

    Know what I mean?

    Someone got a link on doing this?

    Cheers!

    BTW.........

    ...then at the end of that video, I find a "Thanks to Curtis Fuller" and web address where I found this link to a Word document "Inside-out Ornaments"


    Is that our Curt Fuller....?

    Way cool, I'm going to have to buy some wood to try these out in....

    I watched the video, and spent most of the time saying "what the heck?" to myself. But it all comes together in the end...

    Somehow, I think that's a little beyond my present skill. I'm thinking of doing something more like these: http://www.rrosand.com/gallery/ornaments.html



    but the icicle part may be way too tricky for me... lots of chances to mess up...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Yeah, embarrassing eh.......

    Thing is, most of the wood I have is just about 2" rough, so it would be on the thin side, great for flatwork (YIKES ) but I want something thicker for these ornaments......... plus, a good excuse to buy some really cool exotics!

    Cheers!
