These were a fun project.
made in 2 parts. Pine on top & masonite bottom for strength & visual effect.
Tightbond III glueup

Rough cut around with scroll saw

Fine trim with router & template stuck with double sided tape.

Finished with Feast Watson gloss wipe on poly, although the gloss doesen’t show up too well on the pics.

I think I might do a few for presents!.

Grumpy. The experiment continues.

Those look great. I’d like a set under my Christmas Tree.

Those are pretty wild Tony. I wouldn’t mind having my own set but don’t want to try that route yet. LOL. I always think of branches on a tree when I see these.

Hi Tony, that is a great project and would make lovely presents. The interesting part is that no two are alike, you were brave doing something like that.

Thanks for sharing Tony.
