This woodturning is made of apricot about 5″ tall and 1 1/2″ in diameter. The tree branches are painted with acryllic paint. The entire tree is finished with lacquer. The ornament has a handmade brass hanger.
The branches were turned off axis. Three additional centers were marked on the base at 60 degree angles and about 3/8″ from the true center. The turning axis was shifted to the first off center axis to turn a groove at every third mark along the tree. Then the turning axis was shifted to the second off center axis to turn a groove at every third mark along the tree starting with the second mark. Finally, the turning axis was shifted to the third off center axis to turn a groove at every third mark along the tree starting with the third mark.
This ornament is part of the Christmas Ornament Woodturning Challenge 2012.
