Christmas Ornament, Inside Out Turning




As the silly season is almost upon us , I thought it wood be a go idea to try my hand at turning an ornament on the lathe .

Starting by ripping down some scrap pine to 4 lengths by 25 mm x 25mm. They were held together with hot glue and the inside was turn . Next the 4 blanks where pull apart and glued back together , and what was once the outside now become the inside of the ornament . Once the shape was achieved the sanding started with 120 grit and worked my way up to 1200 .Super glue (C.A.glue) was added as the first coat a light sand with 000 steel wood and then the final coat was added . Im slowly getting used to what all the lathe chisels do and what not to do with them Overall Im very pleased with the end results

    Nice job. Its hard to tell what tools you're using but I thought I saw you using a gouge as a scraper. These youtubers are a great source of information: Carl Jacobson, Mike Waldt and Wyomingwoodturner (Sam Angelo). Also if you speak Spanish Miguel Sanchez.
