Fifth Annual Secret Santa Ornament C&T
Nov 5th, 2013 at 12:35pm
 
Hope everyone is ready for another Challenge & Trade.  Your new challenge is to turn a Christmas Ornament.  Aah, but not just any Christmas ornament.  It’s similar to last year’s Ornament C&T, but it must be made from at least
2
different woods or other materials
in any configuration. Whether laminated, segmented, mortise/tenon joint, or whatever.  And it must have some sort of hollow center, such as, inside out, hollowed or a shell.  You don't have to be an expert to participate, just give it your best effort.

If you want to do multiple trades, they don't have to be different, just label pictures as "#1 Inside Out" and "#2 Bird House".

We will open the gallery by Saturday, November 23.  Pictures must be posted by 9am PST Thursday, November 28.  I will figure the round robin assignments using Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register and PM the results later that day.  Like last year, we want everyone to get these before Christmas, so all packages need to be postmarked by Saturday, December 7.

As was implied by the Subject Line, this will be a Mystery Round Robin style trade.  Everyone who participates will be assigned another member to surprise with their Ornament.  Everyone needs to post here when they ship, but don’t mention to whom or where you are sending it, and again when they receive their ornament.

Please sign up if you plan to participate, the more, the merrier and say how many trades you want to do.  But remember, if your picture is not posted, and you haven't PM'ed your address to me, by 9am PST Thursday, November 28, you will not be assigned a trade.  Also indicate in your PM whether you are willing to pay the additional postage to trade with our Canadian and overseas members, if we have any participate.

OK!  You have more than 3 weeks to do this.  Let's get out there and turn some ornaments!  If you are not sure you can handle this, go out to your shop and try some different ideas.  It may surprise you how easy these are.  Look at the galleries from previous years for ideas.  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register, Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register, Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register, Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register.  We have had up to 16 members participate previous years.  Let’s see if we can eclipse that number.  We have a lot more members now.

“I dare you!”


For those members who are new and wonder what a C&T might be, here is our explanation.

C&T stands for Challenge & Trade.  We define the parameters of a challenge for you to perform.  After completion, you post a picture in the new C&T area of the Gallery.  Participants will receive a PM with name and address of the member they are to send the completed item.  They will receive one from the same person if we are doing partners, or a different person if we do a Round Robin trade.  If we are doing partners and have an odd number complete the challenge, we end up with the 3 final members in a Round Robin.  Sometimes like this one, we do a Mystery Round Robin where nobody knows whose piece they will receive until they get it.

Syd, You will need to fill out a Customs Declaration form (for the US it is form CN22) at the Post Office when you mail your piece.  Check the box for Gift.  Country of Origin.  Description is “Woodcraft”.  Quantity is 1.  Weight is determined by Post Office scale   Value is $1   HS Tariff left blank.  Fill in the From & To sections, and then sign and date it.  There is no duty due on it.

Take Jerry's challenge.  You still have 16 days to try something.  If you don't try, you lose!  If you try, you win, whether you complete one or not.  And if you are successful, you can trade it for one from another turner who may or may not be More experienced than you.

And think of all the lathe time you get.

I agree with Jim, just try something. Let me say this to those (like me) who feel their turning technique is not up to doing this competition, THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX!
I know my technique and quality is not the best as I am still learning. I decided to make something totally different that I have never ever seen, gee, what could it be. After a few days I the idea popped into my head, I have even googled it and have yet to see anything like this, but I am sure it's out there someplace.  For me this challenge has already paid off with the idea alone, it is so simple but makes since. So if Jim don't mind me saying this, take the challenge, follow the rules, and look at the previous years pictures. Then add a personal challenge, by turning an ornament that is unique, again, think outside the box. I think it would be cool to see this year with the most entrants ever.

Jerry, the classification simply reflects how many posts you have made.  I think Noob lasts until you pass 25 posts...

5 DAYS LEFT!
 

Anyone else in?  I've got mine done.

If you have it done and are ready to post a picture in the gallery, don't forget to PM me with your Snail mail address.

For our newbies, to PM, simply click on the PM button at the bottom of this post and use the subject Santa C&T.

BTW, be sure to post it in the "2013 Secret Santa C&T" gallery area.  If you are not already registered in the gallery, you will need to register separately from the forum.  It uses different software and doesn't our member list.  Be sure to use the same UserID so we know who you are.

Jim,

I am a bit confused, I went to post my ornament but I did not see a way to post it in the gallery. Then I noticed I was not logged in, after a bit more time I noticed I am NOT logged in when I am in the gallery.

Jerry,

The gallery is different software from the forum.  You need to register and log in separately.  Most folks use exactly the same ID in both.

  I don't know if I'm going to make  it.  loml is chronicly ill.  We're going through a rough patch with it right now.  I've had one ornament failure and one more about 50% complete.  I probably won't be able to post untill Thursday.   I hope I don't miss this.

All of the PM's have been sent to the participants.  Please get it mailed by Saturday, December 7.  Post in this thread when you ship but don’t mention who gets it or where it is going.  Post again when you receive your gift, and don’t forget to thank the maker.

If you have any questions, send me a PM.

Thank you for joining in this C&T.  For those of you who didn't, you missed out on the opportunity to get an ornament from another member.  We will have a different C&T coming up this spring.

Mine has been mailed to Fred Flintstone of Bedrock, I was told if Fred or his wife Wilma are not there it will be delivered to their neighbors Barney and Betty Rubble. Lets just hope that Bam-Bam doesn't get a hold of it.  I hope Fred likes a little humor, because I added some to the box.

FYI Return address is Toschlog Photography since I shipped it from the studio.

I stepped out for the mail yesterday evening and found the nicest acorn box.  Thanks Jenn.  It won't be just a holiday decoration.  I'll place it on my display case for all to see.  If you don't mind Jenn I'll put your name on it.   

When I have visitors I like to show off my far off friends work.  Your name should be on it.  Thumbs Up

I just received a very cool ornament from Jerry Toschlog, along with a "little" history.
Thank you very much, I really like the originality and the execution as well. It should be hanging on the tree shortly.  Smiley Smiley

I got a package from Calgary today --  I could not wait for the 25th so shared the blame for early opening of a package. 

My wife opened it and commented as she did, that the sender wraps packages like I do -- stout and protected several layers deep.

It was well wrapped to say the least and arrived in perfect condition.  It now hangs on the special display tree with other most excellent  ornaments.  It fits right in. 

Many thanks Bert!!!

Thank you Bob as I received yours in the mail today. WOW I am so impressed, I have never seen up close anything that detailed. Thank you very very much and it will not be packed away with the Christmas stuff I plan to keep it with my turnings to give me inspiration!!  Meanwhile like a child at Christmas, I was very intrigued with your packaging. I would like to point out to everyone that he shipped it in a tube but the ends were wood and I am 100% sure he turned those ends....  Plus he packed it in a newspaper from a  college. First thing I noticed as a photographer was how crisp and clear the printing and colors were. The pictures are nothing like I have seen in the states, they were clear. Their was even a walmart ad he used and the color just popped. Even the wife was taken back on ad and paper.

You're welcome, Jerry!  I had a mailing tube that was long enough to make two shipping containers but I did need to make up some end caps from some scraps of 2x4.  I didn't realize there was anything unusual about the packing stuff.  We get a plastic bag full of flyers dropped on our front porch every week and I just rescued some of them from the blue box when I needed something to fill out the package to keep the ornament from rattling around.  I confess I wasn't paying attention to what papers I was using.

Glad it got there safe!

I am going to share what I included with Ed's ornament. I like to give character to things, give it a story.  Some may think this is goofy, but it's me, what can I say.  This was printed and rolled with  a gold band around it.   


Certificate of Authenticity


This document certifies that this bowl and gouge is an original from the archaeological
dig of the little people in 1984.


History:
   There was a group of small humans known by the locals as the little people, many thought this was just a myth. The location of this village has been kept secret, even to this day. This is why most people are largely unaware that they ever existed.  In 1984 a small group of archaeologists did a excavation of the area that they were believed to be in. This became known to archaeologists as "the dig of the little people". Much to the surprise of the archaeologists, the little people were using what we would call today a wood lathe. They found several bowls, turnings, and tools used and made from this process.  This certified bowl and tool (today called a gouge)  was one of several found, but the ONLY one to have the tool and bowl fused together. The fact it even has the shavings from the bowl also fused makes this a one of a kind. That also raises speculation that whatever caused the fall of the little people must have happened suddenly and with great impact, such as a meteor. It is speculated that this bowl and tool was permanently preserved and fused at that very moment.  We hope you cherish this rare and priceless relic from the "dig of the little people".

Got a package from Guy Bratt today.  Thanks, Guy!  Those little bells are awesome.  How did you know my wife collects bells?  Cheesy  They are already hung on the tree.

I did look up where Richmond was when I saw your post about the ornaments you turned for the Port Huron Hospitals Festival of Trees.  We sure aren't too far apart!

Take care
Bob

We hadn't picked up the mail for a few days and there were two packages there this morning.  A very nice globe ornament from Bill Shoppert and a delightful little sea urchin ornament from Ken Vaughan! 

Thank you very much, both of you!
Happy Holidays to all.

Take care
Bob

P.S.:  I sent three ornaments out on the same day and so far only two have arrived, as far as I know.  Sad

Only one yet to be accounted for? hmmm it may be sitting in a post box as I had to be away from home for a few days.
it may be a few days before I get to check my snail mail. Cry
Regardless this has been fun and inspiring, so many friends and family now have Bert originals hanging on their trees.  Thumbs Up

Ah, man, I looked around for the receipt with the tracking number last week when we were talking about it and I couldn't find it.  I do have a few more of those ornaments so if it doesn't show up in the next week or so I will send another.

Thanks Bob, it may show up after the season's rush of mail clears. I once sent a package within alberta and tracked it to the receiving PO,  and it still took two weeks to deliver to community drop box from the distribution center.

Well, finally!  I have to chuckle when Jim says to indicate if you are willing to spend the extra money to ship internationally.  It cost about $2 more to send that one within Canada than it did to send the ones to the US and it took three weeks longer to arrive.  And Canada Post is boosting their rates again in the spring...    Cry

Take care
