  • 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.

              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.

                                So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
                                I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!

                                Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

                                Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
