  • 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.

                  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!

                          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.

                          The outside
                          of the extension is almost finished apart...

                          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...
