Default Two Sided Ornaments

I finally got all my customer orders out and found time to cut these ornaments for my new grandson and great granddaughter.

They were carved on both sides from a piece of walnut I had that was not big enough to make anything else. They still need a little cleanup and a some clear coat but the hard part is done.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Cool gifts (and ornaments) Mike - they'll be keepsakes for sure. A handmade gift is always special.

Mike, those are wonderful! I hope parents will keep them until the kid grows up enough to treasure them and appreciate what a wonderful gift they are--a celebration of their birth. Wow!

You have a business there, by the way! There is a guy up here in the desert who spends all year making fancy band saw boxes and other small wood items. He takes a "Kiosk" space in our only shopping center and sells out every year. Make these with all the common names and appropriate greetings and a beautiful finish. I bet they'd sell like hot cakes. You could also do special orders online. Or do something colorful and find a handicapped workshop to paint them? Things like Oliver's brain-gears would work too. The possibilities are wonderful. Worth getting a CNC for.

BTW, I teach marketing as a consultant, can't help thinking in those terms when I see something as good and original as this.

Mike,

You are going to make me buy a CNC yet, and doing this will require an addition to my shop. I'm already out growing the one that I have.

Those are beautiful!!! I'm sure they will be cherished for many years, hopefully becoming ornaments on their own trees in 20 years or so.

I hope you and family have a wonderful Christmas.

Charley
