Looks good Fay. If I may suggest, just for picture taking if nothing else, get a daylight light bulb. It will get rid of the orange tint and show the true colors. I'd love to see the colors you got plus the green glitter.

How hard was it to cut and shape the bow?

I like it! I agree with the light comment I'm quite certain the pictures don't do the work justice.

Oh it wasn't hard to cut the bows and tails, but it is hard to get ahold of so I used the jig I made from Steve Good's site and that was a big help. I messed up the first set of tails and had to cut a second set and I got better results. Can't wait til those polar blades come so I can see if they are any better for the compound cutting. I have one piece of wood left for compound cutting and it is just enough to cut another ornament and I have 2 cut out. I also have Steve Good's pattern for an ornament hanger thing and it displays the ornaments. One can leave them up year round. I too agree on the lighting. This was my ceiling light in the bedroom in Mom's house and I can't see worth beans in the shop either . The light went out on my scroll saw and I bought bulbs for it and they went out so it is either the light or the bulbs were too high of wattage. I forgot to look in the store yesterday for some thing in a lower wattage. I do have a light in the shop and it is one of those kind of lights that is supposed to help depression. That might give me a better light for picture taking. I have another box cut out and when I get it done, I 'll try that light. Have a great day Fay

The polar blades will make a HUGE difference. I picked some up from Mike and they work like a charm for the compound cutting. You will love them.
