John’s Christmas Lights
Added on December 21, 2010
Amateur or Pro: Amateur
Finish Used: Light coat of beeswax on the yellowheart
Wood Species: Yellowheart and Hutt Dymondwood
This is a wood turning project that creates christmas lights out of yellowheart and Hutt Product’s Dymondwood (an over-dyed hardwood that polishes up like glass). A short dowel of red oak is also used to hold the piece on the lathe and creates a small nib on the bottom of the light.
It’s a simple and fun project that always gets a lot of compliments for me. I have even turned smaller versions for earrings.
