Default Xmas Decorations

Here are a few of the different Christmas items I have been making.

The snow globe decorations are made from scraps of IPE decking material, finished natural. They had some truly unique coloring.

The snowflakes were made with thin rough sawn scraps of pine. Probably made 50-60 ornaments total. Time to move on to something a little more challenging...

Thanks David. Not quite up to your skill level yet, but still enjoying it.

Thank you. I am using Aspire, but any of these could be done in VCarve. Most of these are standard Vectric models with a little Vcarving on them. The snowflakes are just clipart vectors from the web.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

HaHa. FREE time is right, not much income involved when making gifts.. Not much happening right now with my "real" job either, so have more time to play.

Working on something much larger right now, we will see if it is worthy to post when done. You have set the bar pretty high.

Those are some of the nicest Christ-mas decorations I've seen.
