  • 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

My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                          I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                          These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
