Christmas Lights

Posted on December 30, 2008

Now that I am done being “Santa’s Workshop” for the year, I thought I would post a little of this years output. These Christmas lights are from an American Association of Woodturners project book. I made them with Dymondwood from hutt products , a little bit of Yellowheart for the base and a small length of oak dowel for gripping in the chuck and forming a small tip for the “screw in” part of the base.

Out of all of the bowls and pepper mills and various oddities I produced this year, these where by far the most popular (I made about 30 of them in 3 different colors). They were also the easiest to make. Once they where glued up it took me about 30 minutes to finish one. The Dymond wood polishes up to a glass like finish so I didn’t bother to put a clear finish on top.

I already have new people asking for them next year. 🙂
