Using a tutorial I found at woodturningonline I was able to make a few "inside-out" Christmas ornaments out of some different woods I'd had laying around. All are a combination of Hickory and Walnut, with the exception of the one with the Hackberry finial. My finials aren't real good but I'm getting better the more I work on making ornaments. I've got about 7 done so far and another 7 in different stages of completion.
I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
