I'm hoping sometime prior to Christmas my turning skills will have improved enough to let me make something more exciting than a Tea Light holder. Thanks for all the positive comments - I must have made over 300 of these since the first sets in pine in 2004. For the trees, I have green spirit dye and just dip them, by far the easiest way then paint the lower trunk and pot.
I was feeling brave that Christmas so wrapped it in a cardboard tube and gave to my wife - I put up with her 'fake' gratitude and mother in law stares for all of 2 mins before telling her to twist the lid (the box had cotton wool to stop any rattle).
I was not sure what I wanted for such an ornament, but some ideas came together as I turned.
For a number of reasons cash is short this year but I have plenty of bits of wood that I can use to do these.
