This is a new set of ornaments that I designed. There are 10 pieces in the set. They are various musical instruments with Christmas holly and bow decorations. I cut them of 1/8” cherry and finished them with mineral oil. The second set was cut from 1/8” Baltic birch plywood and was stack cut with the cherry set. I decided to paint the birch set with gold metallic paint and also paint a light coat of green and copper acrylic metallic paint. The largest ornaments in the set measures approximately 4” long.

I hope you enjoy seeing them! :)

Sheila. The full size pictures really show these off properly. Especially that last one with the glow on the Lyre. This is some seriously good work and the presentation is spot on. Whilst wood purists may prefer the oil finished ones I feel the painted variety are a quantum leap better.

Rkevins: Did you get your Holiday Issue? I haven’t even seen it yet. I am glad you like the projects in it. I was having a hard time parting with some of them and putting them on hold for so long (we had to have them to the magazine in March) but now that I will see them in print it will be very much worth it. I can’t wait to see what else is in the issue. Hopefully, I will get mine soon. Let me know how your Angel and Snowflakes come out.

Thank you also for the complement. I can’t wait for the cool weather either. :)
