St. Patrick’s Day Gnome

March 21, 2023 By Billy Burt Sr Off

Things got in the way of me getting this up on time, but here it is. You can view my other turnings here…. Last week was gnome week at Worldwide Woodturners ( and also St. Patty’s Day. This gnome, or gonk, was turned for that purpose. And I thought I’d throw in a little twist of sorts. I turned it all in one piece and attempted to give the hat a bit of a slant. That didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped, but it wasn’t a fail either. I finished it with Valspar gloss water-based poly. It measures 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ tall. Enjoy. If you have questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks for watching.
