    Christmas Ornament

    Hi Guys,

    Great to see the forum back up and running in all it's glory.

    I spent last weekend turning this Christmas ornament. The main body is maple, which has a bit of quilting in it, and the finials are walnut: Claro walnut for the top piece and English walnut for the bottom. I'm a cheapskate about throwing out wood scaps so I used up the best size pieces for them :P

    Thanks for looking!

    That's sweet Gari. Great figure in that Maple, and the finials set it off nicely. That'll look good on the tree!
