Create great gifts and build turning skills by making holiday ornaments for everyone on your list. Here are 19 delightful holiday projects for woodturners of all skill levels, shop-tested projects selected from the pages of American Woodturner, journal of the American Association of Woodturners. Holiday woodturning projects are so popular because they are skill-building and perhaps challenging to make. They are always fun to give, and they are a delight to receive. Better yet, they are unique expressions, no-one will find another at the mall. The skill-building projects in this book include:

  • Two ingenious and lovely angels to hang on the tree or place on a holiday mantel display.
  • Two designs for snowman ornaments, three designs for tree-themed ornaments, and four variations on the classic icicle ornament.
  • A Santa Claus nutcracker with a jaw that really works, along with a plan for Mrs. Santa Claus.
  • Ornamental snowflakes and a string of lights made entirely of wood.
  • A commemorative medallion that can be unique for each recipient.
  • Delightful acorn birdhouses, ornaments from pen-tube kits, hot-air balloons, and ingenious hollow bottles.

There’s something here that you can make for everyone on your gift-giving list. Since 1986, American Woodturner has been the leading journal for practical and reliable information written by woodturners for their fellow woodturners.
