Gift ornaments *PIC*

john lucas
I call them gift ornaments because they screw apart and you can hide gifts inside. We are going to see if they will sell at the Craft Center. My other ornaments sell but these will be a fair amount higher in price. Haven't decided exactly how high. going to call the gallery director monday and have a conversation about that.
Most are threaded directly using the Baxter threader however some woods are too weak to hold a sturdy thread so I add inserts out of wood or sometimes like the one on the right I use colored epoxy.
I disquise the joint in various ways and here is a photo.
