Default Ornament

A friend of mine made this ornament for display in his home for Christmas. He is a master woodworker. He specializes in making pioneer-era furniture (1830-1875). There are over 100 pieces of wood used in this ornament. He used two different lathes as well as several other tools in its making. A French polish and CA finish were used. I just wanted to share his beautiful work with this group.

From concept to execution and display, everything looks excellent!
The bent support is a nice touch.
Well done!
