Eagle or Woodcraft ?

bought them from Eagle, I started with the chip tray, and the christmas tree, then I made the mistake of showing the other holiday trays to the better half, now I got a honey do list of christmas gifts for just about every one they have. The only one she didn't like was the santa hat.

Gives me the templates to make them way ahead of time next year I guess.

This sounds like a good excuse to buy more tools.
Have you seen these? The inflatable sanding heads come in small sizes and are great for sanding those curved tight spots.
King Arthur Tools
Woodcraft and Klingspor sell them.

That's intersting, I almost was ready to add to cart then I noticed the round head is 2" in Dia. thats too big I need it to be less then 1 1/4" Dia.

If i can get the things cut with out any burning then sanding wouldn't be an issue.

I think I an going to try my pin router idea, I'm going to make a pin/guide that leaves about 1/32" left on the profile to cut then put the finish size pin/guide in and cut the last 1/32" hopefully there won't be any burning.

Fingers crossed.

Danny - well done! We really liked seeing the photo of your finished bowls & trays. I think we are going to blog about your work. I can already see the smiles on the people's faces once they open up those gifts. Take care - Tim from Eagle America

I'm currently working on the next set of trays, I have a maple and walnut tree ready to route, and have a cherry gingerbread man ready to hog out with the drill, and am glueing together several deferent widths of maple and cherry for the candycane. Plus I am going down today to get some Beech to make a couple of angels.

More pics to come.

I think we'll have 14 - 16 of them made by the time I'm done. Should be good experiance for next year it won't take me so long.

tight areas are always difficult. in nz my preferred wood is rimu (ree moo) which is a hardwood and burns easily. as said above the best way is to only make shallow cuts that can be cut away quickly. speed is the answer here before the wood overheats.
