To make a segmented, woodturned Christmas ornament, I started by sketching what I wanted to do which was a Christmas tree figure on a sphere. I structured the sphere by layering up pieces of holly and purple heart to form the pattern, with a layer on the bottom for the trunk and a layer on the top for the sky. The original idea was to also make it hollow, drill holes in it for lights, and put a LED light with a watch battery inside. The turning proved to be at the limits of my skill level and tool collection. I dropped the light idea and just tuned it as a solid piece. I made a decorative finial at the top and bottom. Merry Christmas!
