A Few Nice Ornaments
These are thumbnails. Click to enlarge.
One of my oldest friends, George North, sent me these photos of his version
of stack cut inlays on a scroll saw applied to Christmas Ornament Globes.
I think you'll agree . . . he gets it!
The Bottom Photos are images cut and ready to be glued onto globe cores.
George has decided to sell these in sets of 4 pieces, enough to make one globe, for $20 plus shipping.
If you are interested, let me know and I'll forward your info on to George.
All of the styles you see above are covered in the set
These Unique Handcrafted Hollow Polychromatic Christmas Ornaments use many different species of exotic and domestic hardwoods. The globe's are hollow. Nothing weighs more than 2-1/2 Ounces. Everything is turned on a lathe. Most feature four individual vignettes set off with contrasting veneer from 1/32" to 1/8". Thanks to my good friend and woodworker extraordinaire, Don Russell, Oxford, Georgia, for introducing me to the polychromatic style which he uses to make large vases and bowls.
Woods used include: Jatoba, Purpleheart, Bloodwood, Yellowheart, Goncalo Alves, Wenge, Zebrawood, Lacewood, Cherry, Maple, Black Walnut, and Mahogany
The Globes average very close to 2-1/4" in diameter. Overall height is between 7" - 9" with most approximately 8-1/2" tall. The turned lidded box is 2-1/2" wide by
Here are two globes with scroll sawn vignettes. I have not yet mounted the icicles or top buttons on the first one.
