The ornaments I make are typically comprised of a globe and finial. I usually start by making the globe because I can make the finials match better stylistically than making the finial first. However, if I was working from a sketch instead of designing while at the lathe, it shouldn’t matter which element is made first.
In the next post I’ll walk you through my process of forming and finishing the globe.
