  • German Christmas Ornament Expanded

    I work with a German lady and got her name in this year's gift exchange for our section. I saw a photo/pattern for an old German ornament and thought she might like my rendition of it. I cut the ornament out of 1/4 baltic birch, the base is scrap oak, I used 4 dowl pins, three wheel axels. I stained the ornament, pins and axels with golden pecan. I used polyeurathane on the base. I used the poly in three coats on the ornament. I added the plexiglass behind the ornament for strength and protection for the finer cuts. The candle is wax with battery powered flame that also has a 4 hour timer included. I think she will really like it.

              Never heard of a battery powered candle before.

                  That is a nice piece of work. You did a fine job & a good idea too. That's what makes a special ornament for the Holiday's. You are talented indeed. Thanks for showing us.

                      Thanks for everyone's comments. I am really enjoying scrolling. Wish I had gotten started a long time ago. At 65 my hearing is shot, I am almost blind in my right eye but left is still good. Sometimes it's a strain making the cuts but I like it too much to give it up. As I am retiring in February the wife said I had to find a hobby, well I think I have found it! Also, it's much safer than chasing girls!

                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                          Now,...

                          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
