Hey Jay! I'll post a few more Modified Slims tomorrow in this thread, as they are Xmas Gifts. Urethane is curing yesterday and today (I give them 2 days for good behavior).

Default Snowmen

I turned a baker's dozen of these snowmen to put on my craft fair table this fall. They have been moving slowly but steadily. The first weekend they paid for the table fee.

My wife crochets a simple scarf for them from red or green yarn. She draws the face on them and I burn it with the pyrography pen. They are turned (mostly) from ash with black walnut hats. A couple elm ones got included as well.

So post away! I have three small bells that I will post tomorrrow. Until then I'll start with a pickie from a few years ago:

The bells will be a bit smaller, but nonethless, FUN!

Ideas for everyone else!
Reminded me of Pecans which gives me the idea to use pecans for the body and make the top and bottom.

And a quick video to show the shimmering of the colors before I took it off the lathe and buffed it.

Default #3

Made a simple one this morning. The last took a lot longer to sand/polish than I would've liked. I'll probably stay simple just for the sake of saving time so I can make several of them.
