          Looks good to me! I've been meaning to make that Christmas Tree. I've had the plan scanned into my computer for years now.

              The pattern for the tree is from Woodsmith (No.114). It was one of those "someday" projects that I finally got around to. Decided to spruce it up a little (pun intended) and replace the round finial with the angel. The angel pattern is from Diana Thompson reduced 50% to be sized properly for the tree.

                  Thanks again for sharing Bruce and for where to find the pattern for the tree. Lucky for me, hubby is a wood crafter of another sort (no scrolling) and he subscribes to that magazine. Unfortunately, he did not have the "back order" so he is getting "gifted" the USB drive with all of them through 2018 when it becomes available which means I (I mean "he") got immediate access to them online. Win for him, win for me. Now it is on my "someday" project list.

                      Melanie, just a FYI. When I made the wire hooks for the beads I made a small loop on the bottom end of the wire to hold the bead instead of gluing the wire into the bead hole (as the article author did). Worked a lot quicker and easier than the glue. Just another option for you when you get around to your "someday" list.

                        Thanks Bruce, good to know. Since i am a crafter of many crafting methods - master of none - I would have beads and wire already probably and the tools to make those loops. I did find the pattern and get it printed out. Now, to find the "some day".

                          Sorry, I totally missed this question, for CorelDraw, crop you pattern to the edges on all sides, then scale the pattern to 100mm x 100mm then export that to PDF. What that does is than anyone can take you pattern then make it fit any coin by just printing to a percentage that matches the size of the...

                          I have used several different epoxy. I use 5 and 15 minute epoxy for most things. I use the Bob Smith brand from Amazon. I mix it in small pill cups and measure by weight with a cheap small digital scale. One does need to be careful as it is not mixed one to one by weight and you have to check directions....
