Here are two ornaments that I was commissioned to do. My first. Both were done on the outside with just a skew. The inside was hollowed with a hollowing tools I made from a allen wrenches. I made a straight one and one is 90*. They work pretty slick. Finished with 4 coats of lacquer. She liked the first ones I displayed at the Arts Council but were sold when she went back to buy them so she called and I made these for her. The left is ash and walnut done in 3 pieces. The other is maple and is a one piece design.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
