woodturned christmas tree

Last christmass I gave you my … christmass tree. This is one of the christmas trees I gave away last december (2014). It started out as a quick project to practice my skew techniques.

When I presented one to an aunt as a gift for hosting christmas dinner, ┬ámore people wanted one so I ended up making about half a dozen. Since there was little time in between all the parties and food to make nice pictures I’ll only post this one. the others all looked about the same, ┬ábut were made from different types of wood.
