Woodturning Monthly

Chris MarshallWhen I started woodturning nearly 20 years ago, I was inspired by the holiday season to turn some Christmas tree ornaments. At first glance, the globe-shaped efforts I created looked pretty good and seemed appropriately sized, but they were solid wood. It was easy to tell which branches they were hanging from — just look for the ones sagging under the heavy load! Well, Kurt Wolff-Klammer’s whimsical and delicate umbrella ornaments in our AAW feature article suffer none of the shortcomings my ornaments did. They’ll also provide an opportunity to take your bowl- and spindle-turning skills down to the “micro” level! Why not give them a try for this season? I’ll bet they’ll become a cherished part of your family’s ornament collection for many Decembers to come.
