    1/8" birch ply, not sanded yet, or finished, but except for the drummers, it is completely cut out X3

    12 days of X-mas

    Ned,

    That is a really cool idea. It looks like a heck of a lot of work. If I had the skill I would like to do that. Maybe next year I will have the skill.

    I can just see those as the only ornaments on a small cabinet top Christmas tree. Maybe a few strings or threads added---Sort of a miniature of threading ribbon on a full size tree.

    Enjoy,

    JimB

    Thanks guys,
    Jim it was a bit of work, but the benchtop drill press helps a lot, as does stack cutting. I simply tape three blanks together with masking tape, use craft spray glue to stick the patterns on, and get a set of ornaments in basically one day (I cut three of them last week, the rest today)
