This year’s Christmas Ornament Challenge is rapidly approaching. The submission period is November. We’re working on the official announcement.
Meanwhile, I want to turn a simple ornament.
While there are few rules for ornaments, one that occurs to me is that something that must hang from a tree must be lighter than solid wood. But I don’t like hollowing thru a small hole.
So for this ornament, I’m turning it cross grain, part it, hollow the two portions, then glue the piece back together again.
The challenge for this ornament is how to mount it to the lathe.
