Beautiful work. That'll look fantastic on the tree this year. This may seem like a silly question, but having never made something like this, do you laminate the wood first and then turn it or do you turn the pieces first and the glue them together? I'd like to try making one of these but am not sure of the process. (okay, I just saw that you hollowed it so I guess that you turned it and then glued it together. Do you think it would work the other way?)
There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
