Wood And Materials Used
Cedar, maple, poplar
Tools Used
I made a couple of Steve Good nativity item for the holidays. The first is a Nativity Illumniary. All the material is 1/4", I resawed a bunch of maple and poplar, cut to the correct size on the tablesaw. Each side is a different pattern so I stack cut 3 at a time, hence three boxes. The plans called for sanded plexiglass for the inside for a light diffuser, I didn't have any plexiglass and it costs way too much so I used a medium weight vellum paper, cut to fit and attached using spray adhesive. A cheap battery powered tea light completes it.
The other three piece set is cut from cedar with a maple backer.

The paper works well to defuse the lite, they look good.
