    Last Second Ornament

    I had about 30 minutes yesterday before our christmas with the FIL and needed one more gift for my BIL...went out and made this for him. I was rushed so the finish is pretty rough, but he liked it! Mahogany (spelling?) 5" tall and 2" wide at the base of the green part.

    Merry Christmas to All!!

    Jeff, I find it a great warm gift, and it looks like a Christmas tree, and feel like a Christmas tree, so not so smooth, just what a Christmas tree has like to be.
    Merry Christmas to you all.

    That came out looking pretty cool, Jeff. Speedy McLathe strikes again.
