  • 2020 Christmas Ornaments for Sparrow's Nest

    My wife, Ann Marie, volunteers at a local organization that supplies cooked meals to families’ of cancer victims on a weekly basis.

    Every year she talks me into supplying a handcrafted Christmas ornament for the folks and their families to maybe bring some joy to them. These are the 6 ornaments for 2020, stack cut and hand painted a total of 75 pieces. We had to be careful to not offend anyone with our religious beliefs, which I was willing to do…but I refused to call them holiday ornaments. The ornaments were packaged separately in glassine envelopes, and each family will receive one next Monday with their meal delivery.

    Thanks for looking.

    Rick thanks for your efforts. I run a food bank and I can tell you this time of year, especially this year, we need all the Christmas we can get.

      Beautiful work and thanks for not falling into the "holiday" season. However, I saw an article today that there are 14 different religious celebrations between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
      When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
      Too early to leave, too late to call in.

                    Really like them painted. Well done.

                    Great idea to give to the cancer victims they will really appreciate the thought.

                    This is the first year I have not done ornaments for our local cancer support centre as I used to take about 50 to the volunteers potluck but no lunch this year. I will think about this for next year.

                    Thanks for all your great work.

                      Just looking at The New Scroll Saw Handbook by Patrick Spielman and found a picture of this saw on page 47. Make is unknown and photo was submitted by a Henry Aldinger. Is submitted as an early electric scroll saw.

It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...
