From: John Clark


Location: Georgia

Amateur or Pro: Amateur

Finish Used: Light coat of beeswax on the yellowheart

Wood Species: Yellowheart and Hutt Dymondwood

Project Description:
This is a wood turning project that creates christmas lights out of yellowheart and Hutt Product’s Dymondwood (an over-dyed hardwood that polishes up like glass). A short dowel of red oak is also used to hold the piece on the lathe and creates a small nib on the bottom of the light.

It’s a simple and fun project that always gets a lot of compliments for me. I have even turned smaller versions for earrings.
