Christmas Ornament Woodturning Challenge 2012

Uploaded by AsWoodTurns on 22.10.2012

Hi, Alan Stratton from As Wood Turns. Right now, as I make this video, Halloween
decorations are all over. And Thanksgiving is yet to come. But for me, I need to start
planning my Christmas woodturning projects. I’m sure many of you have the same problem.
If we wait for Christmas, we’ll be too late to make everything we want to give.
To share some ideas, the spirit of Christmas and to have some fun, I’ve joined with a
fellow Oregon woodturner, Carl Jacobson. Together, we’re sponsoring a challenge to each other
and to any other woodturner. For this challenge, make a Christmas ornament and video yourself
turning the ornament. Then, upload the video to YouTube and let me know where it is. I’ll
add your video to our Christmas Ornament Woodturning Challenge 2012 playlist. The deadline is the
same as Santa’s deadline. Get it all done before he starts his journey. Do your best
but also be safe. Use your ornament in some way to promote the
true spirit of Christmas. Here’s the URL for the playlist:
Let’s have some fun.
