For this project video, I had planned an inside out ornament – a really special one. To my dismay, it broke. Due to the imminent deadline, I switched to a walnut tea light with flashing LED.
As I first mounted the wood to my lathe, I put things together about how I was mounting compared to another demonstration I saw recently. So I decided to give a great tip on why I mount many wood blocks to the lathe as I do. (Details inside. :) )
My walnut tea light is about five inches in diameter and about three inches high, finished with lacquer. It holds a battery operated flashing tealight for fire safety.
Remember the Christmas Ornament Challenge submission period is November. Time to get turning.
