    Inside Out Ornament WIP

    We shall see if this one survives the trip.........

    OK here is the first stage, with the template in place, showing the half circle I had to cut. It was HARD to do, for me anyway, but MAN it was hard to get that just right....

    OK sanded and then finished.

    Now I've split the four pieces and turned them around, and they are now glued up.

    Dunno if this is going to work out, but I'm going to give it a spin!

    That's going to be a very delicate ornament! Extremely sharp tools, Extremely light touch with them, throw some salt over your shoulder, and maybe save the bones from your last bucket of KFC, and you should be able to pull it off.

    Hey Stu, I tried one of those after your post the other day. Got just past your last pic, and it blew up on me. I haven't had a chance to play with it again!

    Stu that is going to be a good one. I have did a few. You need a light touch and sharp tools.

    Stu do the ends before the middle, I busted two by starting in the middle and it gets to weak for doing the ends. Good luck.

    Stu,

    I think that you are going to find out that your circle was way too big to start with! You will probably end up with an ornament with flat faces and rounded corners. Not sure of the look that you were going for though, so maybe that is what you were trying to do. Good luck!

    I would consider what you have so far a victory.............whether it makes if off the lathe in one piece or not!

    I'm with Kevin on this one. Take the win now whether it survives the rest of the ride or not. Nice work, Stu.
