Turning a Christmas AngelTurning a Christmas Angel
By: Bob Baucom
Bob explains how he turns his Christmas Angel Ornaments using 2" x 2" turning blanks. He has a unique way to turn the wings which really makes this a fully turned ornament. Bob also includes nice drawings of the parts so it's easy to turn your own version of this iconic ornament.

In this AAW reprint, Nick Cook shows us how he turns a Christmas Angel ornament out of ash or hard maple. He starts by turning the body of the angel and then separately turns the angel wings.

I think many turners enjoy making Christmas ornaments. I try to make a different one each year that I give to friends and family. I also donate ornaments to charities. In 2015 I wanted to make an angel ornament. My inspiration was the line by Zuzu in It’s A Wonderful Life. She said, “Teacher says, ‘Every time a bell rings an angel gets its wings.’”

 

Inside/Outside Angel OrnamentInside/Outside Angel Ornament
By: David Reed Smith
In this detailed photo tutorial, David starts by building a custom chuck for Inside-Outside turnings. Then he proceeds to assemble his blank and cut the inside of his angel. He then rotates the stock (the usual inside-outside method) and turns the final shape of the angel. Lastly, David shows us how he uses a faceplate turning to build a set of wings for the angel.

This project is a little more challenging than most but the stunning results would be worth the effort! If you have an interest in inside-outside turning and are looking for a well documented project, you may have found it!!

 

Angel Christmas Tree OrnamentAngel Christmas Tree Ornament
By: Eugen Schlaak
In this photo tutorial, Eugen shows us how he makes "Angel Ornaments". These are 2-piece spindle turnings cut from one piece of wood. The close-up photo's in this project are some of the best that you will see!

Eugen takes us step-by-step through the process and even shows the best way to use a skew in this project. Even people with "fear of the skew" might be willing to give it a go after looking at the clear pictures in the project!!

The final angels are extremely cute and would be welcome in any house! This project is a "keeper"!!

This protective project mat is made from heat-resistant, easy-to-clean silicone, meaning wet glue rinses off and dried glue peels off. Use it anywhere you want to protect your work surface or your project, whether in the garage, shop or on the dining room table. Since it's heat-resistant, it works well as a protective barrier for hot glue guns. The material is very soft, and one side has a textured surface to trap debris that could scratch or dent your project.
