Christmas ornaments

Made a couple of ornaments. Had some issues with staining the balls. I wanted a red "christmas-like" colour on them and bought some red staining powder (to be mixed in alcohol). Luckily I tried it on some scrap pieces and it turned out real ugly, a very sharp red colour. I had some left over stain in a chestnut colour so I started to mixing them and trying on scrap pieces. After a while I got a colour I liked and I think they turned out quite nice.

Those are fantastic! The color is perfect and the style is like something from a fancy gift shop. Well done!

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Wow man. Those are awesome. You've really set the bar high for me to work toward. Fantastic work buddy. Just fantastic.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
