Jack Franklin Designs New Christmas Ornament for the 2023 Bazaar

Jack Franklin’s Christmas Ornaments Make Thoughtful Gifts

Woodworking has been a hobby of Jack’s since he was a teen. Since moving to Covenant Living at the Holmstad nine years ago, he has taken up wood turning. You may have purchased his cherry and walnut bowls and serving pieces at the Bazaar but in the last three years he has concentrated on turning sea urchins into ornaments with hand-turned wooden finials. A few small green sea urchin ornaments are remaining for sale on September 30. But Jack is pleased to introduce a new ornament this year.

The New 2023 Christmas Ornament

Jack hollows each wooden sphere before adding a hand-turned finial and inserting a battery-operated tea light. The light is on a timer with six hours on and 18 hours off. The battery is replaceable for many years of enjoyment. 

You’ll find Jack’s ornaments in the Wood Shop at the Bazaar.

Just Finished — 45.5 ” tall Candle Stand

Jack had a long piece of solid cherry. He did not want to spoil the beauty of the graining by dividing it into smaller projects, so he created this 45.5” tall solid cherry candle stand. The cup at the top holds either artificial flowers (shown) or a battery-operated candle of up to 3” in diameter.  There is only one for sale in the Wood Shop
