    Butterfly Ornaments { For Door Prizes }

    I made 15 Walnut Butterfly Ornaments for door prizes for the December Meeting/ supper of The Compassionate Friends . This is a non-profit group that helps and aids people that have lost loved ones due to Cancer. My wife is a member , she ask the president last year if I could help in any way and of course yes was the answer . I hope that the drawing winners will like them ........The Butterfly means a new beginning.......

    I'll second Brent's motion. Those look great, and I'm sure the lucky recipients will appreciate them.

    Hey there Larry , I use only one kind Flying Dutchman Blades { I've used just about every kind on the market } on this project I used the # 1 . I usually cut at least three at a time that 1/4" material , when using BB 1/8" plywood material I'll cut 5 at a time . I have cut 5 - 1/4" at a time but its a little harder to do .... P.S. I buy my blades from Mike
    s workshop on-line , these are made in Germany and as far as I'm concerned there the best on the market { just my opinion }
