    Christmass ornament - first try

    Here is my first try out with making an ornament for Christmass.
    Never did that before.
    But seeing what Stuart created, was interesting enough for me to give it a try.
    I did it not like he did, and not in according to my original plan, but I kept it very simple.
    So I took a sqaire solid wooden block, turned holes into the block, and glued in an inside ornament.
    I had to do it in a couple of houres, because I'm working now on my beltsander, and don't wanted to spend a lot of time on this ornament.
    Anyway I learned a lot, and had a lot of fun.

    Ad, Well done! What kind of wood is it? What's the size?

    Yep, more than one way to do things for sure!

    That's a beauty, Ad. I'll bet it's light as a feather.

    Thanks Neal, yes it's a lightweight. It's already gone, my dear daughter grabbed it, and leave me alone.
