In preparation for this year’s Christmas Ornament Woodturning Challenge, I decided to make my own ornament stand. It could also be used for a birdhouse or any other small hanging.
It is surprisingly easy to make. The base is scrap wood from another project. The brass is 1/16″ diameter brass rod but should be heavier such as 1/8″ diameter to be less bouncy.
This stand is finished with Mylands Friction Polish then buffed.
