I've had a star ornament in mind for some time. Never got around to it. Now that the virus has us ole folks penned in, I started it..It took a lot of layout to get the holes in the right place, I cut a hexagon first and I figured out the center as I turned it. The dimensions were not set, so I just started out with a piece of Yellowhart.. NOTHING is glued in, only the center circle piece is fixed. I still have to adjust some of the bling. Point to point is about 4 inches. My wife thinks it would be a great tree topper. Perhaps, but how would I mount it on the tree top? Any ideas?
This one started out as two ornaments. One broke as I was trying something "different" The other was just a piece off an older ornament that I gave up on. Both were in my scrap box. The older piece broke because I had forgotten it had a hole drilled in the center and was covered. I wanted the shaft to be much smaller dia, but enough for excuses. This is where I quit.............before I had to fix something else
Here is one I finished a couple weeks ago on the Ringmaster. Has yellowhart, padauk, cherry, and riverbirch. The paduak bleed over when the lacquer was applied. The padauk has open endgrain pores and if you want a mirror finish it would take a lot more work.
