  • Back to work on Nativities

    As always, I procrastinated all year and now I realize Christmas is only 4 weeks away!!! I planned on giving some new pieces of the nativity to family and friends that got them last year. Also making Mary, Joseph and Jesus form my gift exchange again this year.

    I now have the complete set ready to be glued and finished.

    These took me forever!! Getting them to fit was a nightmare! Thanks Janette for the tips on sanding and cutting!!!

    This shepherd is right off the saw!!! I didn't have to make any adjustments!

    This wise man only needed a little smoothing of one side. My blade got dull and I wanted to finish it before I changed the blade, so I ended up with some ridges. Anyway, Janette told me to go slow and smooth and darn it..... she's right!! I won't have to spend an hour trying to fit each one together!

    Will post pictures when they are finished! Thanks for looking!

              Thanks for nice words! I spent 14 hours in the shop yesterday!!! From 9:00 a.m. till 11:00 p.m. I even ate lunch (peanut butter sandwich) there and skipped supper. But I got a lot done!!

                    Hi Cathy - You have a sharp eye for placing the grain at just the right angle. All your nativity figures are super nice. I'll bet they will look even better with a smooth finish!

                              Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
