    Urchin Ornaments

    Everytime I just start one persons order for a couple of these guys someone else is asking for a couple. Just finished up with 5 today and had another order for 2 more with 2 Celtic knot ornaments from another person.

    Going to get tired of turning finials soon....

    Here's a few shots of some that I have recently turned. All of them have sold before they were turn with the exception of 1 which was sold the next day.

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

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

    here's one of mine with the stands I make.

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

    What do these types of ornaments typically sell for?
    Feel free to tell me to mind my own business 😜

    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.

    Nice.
    It is always encouraging to use materials one has gathered by themselves.

    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.

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

    I have a cone shaped sander to even out the surface of the holes. Cindy Drozda has a great video on utube showing how it's done.
