December 2, 2020

Two items for today.
– Rich Hounjet has been hard at it again, playing with colour.
– Mel Genge shows us how to make an inside/outside Christmas ornament.


I made a number of tea lights to test out some colour matching on spalted Birch, Ash, and Maple. Fun, fun, fun.
Rick


Mel has shown a number of these Christmas ornaments over the years and agreed to do a video on the process. Rather than wait until our meeting to show the video we decided to give viewers more time before Christmas in case you wanted to make one on your own.

You can also check out all the HCT videos by going to our YouTube Channel below.
