    Christmas Ornament

    Went out this morning determined to turn a Christmas ornament. This is a first. Maple and Walnut. The bulb is hollowed out to 1/8". It is 7 1/2" long and 2 7/8" across. The LOML decided she was going to paint it and started a tradition with the kids. So it looks like I have make at least one of these every year now. I am finishing it with wipe on Gel Poly.

    Are they small HFs?

    Cheers!

    Beautiful colour contrast and shape. I think I know something new I am going to try on the weekend.
