In this class you will learn how to make a globe, how to hollow a small form.  Then create a top cap to fit the globe and an icicle that will attach to the bottom of the globe.

Tools: If you have small hollowing tools bring them, however there will also be tools available for your use.

A bowl gouge for the outside of the globe is needed. A small spindle gouge or small bowl gouge will be used on the spindle portion of the ornament.

A Parting tool and a scraper might also be useful.
