  • 1st 3D Ornament!

    I made this 3D ornament today, was my 1st try at these, this is my own pattern too, cut from 1 7/8" sq piece, it is a little over 5" tall. I am pretty happy with the results, need suggestions on finishing this. All comments welcome... good, bad or ugly, that's how we get better. Smitty

    ooh! so nice! I cut my 1st 3-d last nite and it was tough to do - had to really hold down on the wood so it didn't chatter all over the table. Have a mental block b/w how the pattern looks and the final product. Am impressed that you actually created your own pattern.

      Nicely done. I'd use a sanding mop on it and then dip it (danish oil and mineral spirits mixture), let it drip for a little while, blow off the excess, let it cure for a day or so and then use a clear poly finish on it. That is just me though

        Very nice ornament. I have been doing the birdhouse compound cuts like others here have cut and they are fun. How did you design you pattern?

          I have Inkscape. I designed a name letter train last weekend with inkscape, but have yet to cut it, I love the program once I got past the learning curve. Smitty

            Nice design... I like it. When I cut out 3D projects I make sure I put in a "non-reverse tooth" blade. That helps out with the chattering. Having burrs on bottom is a non-issue.

                That's a wonderful pattern, and I really like the way the wood grain comes out. What nice work!

                  Great cutting. I attached a simple to make jig for cutting 3D Really simplifies the process.

                    Great picture oily, I should have included a pic of that with my other pic of the ornament.....that's just what I use too. Thanks Smitty

                      I'm going to use my electric toothbrush sander(homemade) on all the delicate ornaments, I don't need any breakage during sanding. Smitty

                        Or if you're lazy, you can use 2 mini Irwin clamps and 2 blocks of wood

                          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
