          I spray them with 2 or 3 coats of clear Krylon.

            Beautiful and very Novel. Very appealing. Nicely done

              Made some ornaments, too. Wood is oak of unknown variety (from neighbour's tree).

              This is my first small spindle work, need to improve technique and get some tools for turning finials. The smallest spindle gouge I have is 1/2", and it was hard to work the details. Thanks for the inspiration and information.

                  Those look great. I use a 1 1/4" oval skew on the majority of my finials. I use a 3/8" spindle gouge between the onion and base. Also have a 1/4" detail gouge, but only occasionally use it.

                    What do these types of ornaments typically sell for?

                      I am not selling mine, but have a look on Etsy, there are a few for sale between 28 and 60 bucks.

                        Christmas ornaments or just on the shelf ornaments.

                          Those are nice stands. Compliment the ornament and add a whole lot of sophistication to both!

                            Ya, Brian, those stands are incredible.
                            Great idea and completion.
