    1st Christmas Ornament......

    Hey, I think it is only about 100 days or so to Christmas......

    I thought this would be a neat thing to give most of my family members this year, they all have enough bowls and pens

    First one I've ever tried, the body of the ornament is less than 1/8", it was getting thin for sure.....

    The wood is just some beech that I had laying around, two pieces laminated up to make tool handles, but it was big enough, and on hand, so what they hey

    I think the "Icicle" on the bottom is a bit too thick, but this was my 1st try, so I'm still figuring them out, fun for sure!

    Yep, I think I'll like doing these too , heck, I might even be able to sell a few....

    Thanks for looking

    Great ornament, Stu! I like it.

    Ever tried bird house ornaments? They're just as much fun to do. Mix a few into your gift list this year. You'll enjoy them too.

    Nicely done, Stu. I agree the icicle could be a bit thinner, but it's still real nice, especially for a first.

    Stu that is a great looking ornament. Yep I have to agree with you that the icicle is a bit thick but looks good for a first.
