  • Ornaments for Shows

    Here's one of the things that's been keeping me busy. Every time I make 10 or 12 of them, I sell out at a show. So I decided to make at least 30, but I have enough blanks ready to have 60 by my next show. Both runners on all the sleds have the year on them. The tree, candle, and reindeer patterns are from Sheila Landry. The snowman is one I made from clipart.

      These are wonderful! Is the basic pattern for the sled in a magazine? I love the date on them.

        Nice cuttings - I too like the year on the runners. To echo Sally, where did you find the pattern?

          They sell well for me also. My favorite is the tree.
          Putting the year in the runner is a nice idea although I don't date my ornaments anymore.
          The originals were in one of the magazines.

            I know there is an index of the articles in the magazines - but I don't know where it is. Help??

              Sally look on the left side on this page under Subscribe Today for the print article index you are looking for, that being said the sled patterns are in the other magazine Creative Woodworks and Crafts November 2007 issue, photo on mag is 2 raccoons in a tree. Sled patterns by Shiela Landry, so if you don't have the mag check her web site. http://www.sheilalandrydesigns.com/product/SLD140

                  Thank everyone. And thanks WD for providing the info about where to get the patterns. Here's the pattern I use for the runners.

                    Nice work Dan. Making 60 of them sure will keep you busy.

                      Thank you WD for finding the original article - I'm sure I have it. I did find it on Sheila's site. Thanks also for pointing out the article index.
                      Thank you too Max for sharing the runners pattern. I love them. I hope I make some for little gifts.

                          Thanks Dan and WD - I found the pattern and printed the rims. I've cut about 5 tops and am excited. Just have to decided which top scrollings I like best. The tree is right up there. Was the snowman in the article? I didn't think it was. What to share it? The reindeer is cute too. I'll be making them for little gifts - I don't sell - too much pressure.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
