Managed to get a four coats of finish on the first batch. Took the time to hang the beads in a few. Went to the surplus store down town and picked up some more lumber. These are Maple 4.5"X30" boards they sell for $1.95. They are a glue up of two thinner boards to achieve the 4.5". I can get six ornaments from each one. I cut four of them up and have enough to make 24 more ornaments. Notice the rubber bands on this group. In the last thread Gerald mentioned seeing them done without gluing them. I thought it out and figured I could clamp the one end in the chuck and tape the other end. It is a little fussy but still saves a lot of time over gluing them. I get the four sticks lined up with the rubber band on them and put a couple clamps on to hold them together while I mount them in the chuck. I then take some filament tape and wrap the other end. It works surprisingly well. After the first turning I turn them inside out and glue them for the final turning.
