I just finished another Christmas Ornament. A Minion A little late……I know. The idea came to me a couple days after Christmas as I watched Despicable Me on DVD. I turned the body on my lathe from a piece of white pine. A relatively easy turning as I notched it in for the legs and, left a little extra on for the Eye Glass band (hard to see in the picture) and rounded the top over for a head. I then drilled a 3/8″ hole and inserted a small piece of 3/8″ dowel for his eye glass. Finally I added a screw eye to the top to attache a hook.That was the easy part. Painting it was a little more time consuming. I did a Google search for Minions and used the picture online as a guide for painting. I took my time and waited for each color to dry before I added the next. The final detailing in black was done with a thin black Sharpie. Next I will have to make a companion Minion with two eyes.
