#4 Other Inside Out Turnings

These were all done with one inch square six inch long configurations.  So this     broken apart, turned and glued.  Looks like this.     Turned to just round, looks like this.     Shaped and finish applied.  Anything that fits through the window can be hung inside for added effect.  Some beads are hung in this one.     Two smaller ornaments made from one glue up.

#3 Ornament With Cross for Windows

Next is how to make an ornament with a cross for the windows.  Here is the blank mounted in the lathe.     Here it is turned just round where the window will be and the cross upright length, one and a half inches, is marked out.     Everything turned away now will open the window double the depth of cut.  The upright of the cross is going to be a quarter inch wide so a groove one eighth deep needs to be cut the length of the upright.

#2 Getting Started

Mount the blank in the lathe and turn it just round in the area the window is to appear.       With it turned just round there will be no windows when turned back to finish as shown here.       Anything turned away from here on will open the window.  This was put back in the lathe and small grooves cut into it to show result.  Notice how any cut made is automatically doubled.

#1 How Deep to Cut

Inside out turning starts with a glue up of four sticks cut perfectly square and glued together to make a square twice the size of the cut pieces.      There are limits to how deep a cut can be made and not have the turning ruined because the cut was too deep.  One inch square pieces will be glued up to create a two inch blank in this case.  When the blank is mounted in the lathe the first order of business is to turn the area where the window is to appear to the max diameter
