|Turning a Christmas Angel Ornament |
By: John Tarpley
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 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 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"!!

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.
