One of the most BEAUTIFUL home made ornaments I’ve ever seen. You sir have so many talents. And an AMAZING workshop.
Do you turn any NORMAL projects? Or are you now strictly into VERY ADVANCED turns?

I just discovered your page and I love your work.I have a question.Do you special make stuff for sell?If you do how much would you charge for a Clemson tiger paw in a wood with maybe a purple “C” in wood inlaid in the paw?It can be palm size and 3D but thin and light enough to hang from rear view mirror.What would it cost if so?

Your cinematography skills are as amazing as your woodworking skills, that was such an enchanting movie I was literally captivated from start to finish.
I really feel like you should consider mixing the two skills together and make a stop motion / children’s movie and make all your own props..... might I suggest “the woodworking elves” or something along those lines. They could come out at night after you have finished and work on a project and the children can guess what it is they are making.

I grew up in New England and am about to spend my first Christmas in southern California. It's been hard to see all the Christmas stuff start to arrive, knowing that it will still be warm and sunny all through December. It was so nice to see this video, reminding me of what Christmas will be like back home! My family even had the same tradition of cutting down our tree from a local farm.

Today, Oct. 23, 2017, I stumbled across this video.  Not only did I love watching you create a beautiful Christmas ornament starting from your imagination.  Then you all trudged through the field just trying to find that one perfect Christmas tree...VERY well made video that not only shows a person how the ornament came about, but seeing it being hung on the tree by the little ones.  What a great way to make memories.  WELL DONE!  Off to watch you create a "Snow Bell"!

I wonder if Frank ever starts reaching for his bowl gouge, when he visits the dentist. Repurposing an exam light for the lathe is brilliant.

My Grandfather had this nice tradition: He used to keep a piece of the wood of the christmas tree after christmas, let it dry for the rest of the year and made an ornament out of it in december (and sometimes toys etc.) This way we could keep a piece of every christmas and make it a part of the new one. He started doing this for my uncle's first christmas and did it every year until his age and arthritis made it impossible. He made a total of 53 unique ornaments; some simple ones, some more complex. Turned, carved, painted etc. Maybe your kids would like something this.I loved this as a child and I still do, because I'm always a bit sad that you have to throw that lovely tree away after christmas and I was very exiced to see the new ornament each year.

Thanks for a lovely video, Frank. It was interesting to ponder that while your making your Christmas items and battling freezing temperatures, I live in Adelaide (South Australia) where we had 41.3 Celsius (106.3 Fahrenheit) on Christmas Day. The problems I face when making things at this time of year include sweat dripping off me on to the machinery or the actual project itself! Neither settings are particularly friendly to work in. Cheers.

How is your purple heart purple all the way through? Every piece I've used is brown on the inside and has to be heated or spend time in the sun to turn purple.
