I received a lovely Ornament from Ian Clark about a week ago, thank you Ian I love it and it is on desplay and will be for years to come.

I must say sorry to ( can I say yet ??? ) for someone's not ariving for Christmas from me.

I also think that it is Chucks fault, things leaving the USA/Canada, have no problems, but when it comes to your incoming mail, it flounders sometimes. Hense it is Chucks fault !!!??????   Roll Eyes Tongue

I received a package in the mail today.  WOW!  BMac, you done good.  I have to tell everyone to look at the picture of Brendon's Ornament, and then look a the picture of Mark Damron's ornament from last year.

We were also very impressed with the packing material he used.  2 bags of chocolate!

Thanks Jim,

I am just relieved that it finally arrived.  I had forgotten about Marks ornament with the acrylic because, if I had remembered, I would have copied his icicle.

Brendon, I have to agree with Jim. There is no reason to copy. You've made an excellent ornament all on your own. In some ways, I like the frosty look of your drop better.

Fantastic work mate!

I forget to mention,

In Clark also sent me some pen blanks, even one of ebony.............thank you so much Ian  smiley=thumbsup.gif Smiley. This type of wood is a complete mystery to me, so I will only use it for maybe very posh finials on special items.

Brendan also sent me some lovely pieces and extra bits, last C & T., but it never arrived  Cry, thank you anyway Bre., I have printed the picture, so I have it in 1 dimentional form anyway...or is it 2d ?  smiley=beer.gif

Mine has not yet arrived at its destination. !!!!! Cry

Wow! The holiday season is over?!?!?!  My wife took down the decorations today while I was at work so all intentions of getting a "treed" picture of my lovely C&T ornament - courtesy of Jeff McDonald - are over for this year. 

A big Thanks to Jeff for the ornament, it really showed me I have some room to improve in the finishing dept.

Happy new Year everyone!

I got my great ornament from Mike Oyama and it is really cool.  The design was very unique and well turned and (as with all of these C&T's) I got a chance to look close at someone's work which is very inspiring. 
Thank you very much Mike!  Well done! 
I wish I would have gotten a picture of it on the tree but everything is packed up and it will have to wait until next year. 

Ian- I am glad you like the ornament.  Thanks for the nice comments. 

Happy New Year!
Jeff

Thanks to all from me. It was fun. For those who've gotten their's late or put them away, I've left mine on the mantle so I can look at it any time. It doesn't look out of place because we kind of have a turning shrine up there with all of the small pieces I've made or been given.

Anyone that has suggestions for projects for future C&T's, please PM me.  Remember that they generally have to be something that doesn't require any extraordinary skills or equipment.  Many of our members still use 10" lathes, and we encourage all to participate regardless of skill level.  We only ask that you make your best effort.

How about something simple, like spinning tops, minimum sizes to make it worth it, could be normal hand ones, ones you put in a handle and pull a string, I can't throw the throwing ones for my life, so don't know if I get them right....... Cry. These would be cheap on postage too.

or :-

Cup and Ball toys, like shown in the video by Bob H. ? or a variation on that.

Or :-

Any toy ??

Just my 2c. Toys do sell well on stalls and may be good practice for those who like to sell some of their stuff, from time to time. ??

BTW. My xmas dec. is still up on the tree, we have still got what they call 3 Kings to go yet, on 6th. Jan. oh it's a long holiday over here !!!!!! Cool
