With Christmas and Christmas craft shows fast approaching some whittlers and carvers like to carve Santa ornaments for these times. Whether you sell the ornaments or gift them, you'll need several. In fact you may need lots of them. This is one reason that I like to be sure to be very efficient in making them. That's why I like to cut some corners in the process. Here's the way I do many of the Santa ornaments.
I have already decided to finish the ornaments natural, instead of painting. There are several reasons for this decision. First, I am lazy. I also do not like to paint, and run the risk of ruining an other wise decent ornament. I am just not as steady as I used to be. It's also much faster.
Dpn't know how much easier this can get! But I'll still try.
