Bill demonstrated the process he uses to make laminated Christmas tree ornaments. He begins with a carefully machined cube that he accurately marks centers on before drilling halfway through each facet of the cube. This accomplishes the weight reduction of the body of the ornament without hollowing. Next he glues a contrasting 1/4" thick lamination to each facet of the cube. Before turning, he drills pilot holes in the caps. He turns the ornament body, finishes it and drills an 82 degree taper into the pilot holes to receive the finials.
