A little something from my friend Charlie

Charlie AKA Wood Turner on etsy is a Great Guy and an Awesome woodworker from Wisconsin. He's been kind enough to share some tips and give me some help on a number of occasions and he's always great to have a chat with. I've been wanting to start featuring some other Artisans and thought this Great Guy would be the perfect choice to start with. Heres a picture of one of his creations and to see more just click the link to Charlie's shop in the right sidebar.

This is A beautiful hand turned ornament for any decor. Use it for a display, part of a decorative arrangement or on your Christmas tree. Approximately 5 inches tall. Buy one for yourself or as a gift.

I use different contrasting woods for the roof, house and perch.

This particular ornament has a roof of Mahogany, house of Cherry and perch of Walnut. The finish is shellac buffed silky smooth and then a coat of carnuba wax is applied.
