I cut all my blanks a few days ago using my stupid jig.

DW selected these three styles from options that we found on-line. I cut the templates from plastic water bottles that cannot be recycled.

DW assisted me in tracing out the blanks. Here are 30 to be cut out.

I spent quite a bit of time at the scroll saw. I have played with this tool on and off the last couple of years, however it was not until today that I finally got the nack of working with it. After cutting two blanks standing up I had to find something to sit on. I do not have a stool so I improvised and turned the garbage can upside down.

Sample of three ornaments.

Some time later . . ..

Next is some sanding, drilling a few holes and stringing them for hanging.

I’m still working on getting a handle on using the machine.
Well done (and great teamwork – again!)

Be careful, scroll sawing is very habit forming and could become an obsession. Great job on the ornaments. Looks like fun.

After a pile of sanding and a few holes I handed them over to DW. She strung the ornaments and voila.
