  • Star od David

    Several weeks ago, a customer came into ArtCrafters and asked if I could make any Jewish items. I found this pattern by Zohar Laor in SWWC Holiday 2010 issue #41. It is made from 1/2" Ash approximately 7 1/2" square. It reads 'Hear O Israel' according to the designer. I used FD UR #1 and #5 blades. The finish is one coat sanding sealer and one coat spray shellac. Comments welcome.

      Pretty neat. Art of selling, find thing that resonate deeply with folks, and they will want it.

        Nice job on the Star of David.

        If you're looking for other options, my Hamsa box in a recent issue of SSW might be of interest. It's a more elaborate project, but might be something to offer to your customer, if something more elaborate is of interest.

        I did a menorah for CWC a while back, and posted a different one on my blog several years back that's quite unique, and I've sent out many sets of instructions (for free) over the years for that project. If you're interested, let me know and I'll be more specific.

        Most patterns for scrolled Judaica tend to be versions of the Star of David, which is fine, but doesn't do justice to the many lovely possibilities that exist.

          So right, Randy. I had no idea even if he would return and he shows up the day after I made the Star of David.

            Thanks for the suggestions, Carole. Are there other Hebrew symbols that will fir on the Star of David?

              Check out the Hebrew symbol "chai" which means "life" and is often found in the center of the Star of David.

                One of the easiest would be an ornament shaped like a driedel. That is s simple top. Google it.

                    Thanks. I saw those, but decided to do the Star of David.

                      Very nice looking project Denny and glad the man came back and bought it. Hopefully you can find some other good times to offer. Thanks for sharing.

                      On a side note: I tried to go to your site listed in your signature: www.sandyoaksonline.com but comes back as no such page - did you give that site up?

                        Thanks Melanie. It wasn't worth keeping up, so I dropped the site. I forget to take it off the signature. Not sure how to remove it.

                          Signature fixed. For future reference Hotshot, Rolf, and I have limited moderator access on this forum. We can fix and update some things. A signature update is one such thing.

                              One of the old magazines had a pattern for a Shalom puzzle. They sell really well for me. And, people always ask about other Jewish items. Their items aren't quite as commonly found at fairs and farmers markets, so they are quite taken by them. And yours looks outstanding!
