Last batch of turnings for this Christmas I think

  Re: (...)
Mostly bird house ornaments, various domestic woods. The birds are made from ebony(thanks Pinky) and Holly. Two piece tops from ornament left overs.

Wow......someday that will be me (I can dream, can't I?)
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I still like your tree that you make and how nice the ornaments always are.

This time I see some new kind of birds there. Did you make them or buy them? If you bought them where?

It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

Arlin; I made them, if you look closely they are very simple, just a couple of tear drop shapes. Here are three short videos to show how to do them. First one is a little blurry, sorry.

I've never made them myself - Hobby Lobby has a bunch of plastic MIC birds for a few bucks that look surprisingly good. They're in the dollhouse department.

Some neat variations on the theme Steve - especially like the bird on top peeking over rather than being on the perch or inside... going to have to use that idea.
