Default 3D snowflake

I finished this snowflake last night. It is a gift for a teacher friend who is retiring at the end of the month. Of course the party is tomorrow afternoon. The original design is by Kevin Hawks and I found it in Creative WW and Crafts ( sorry, but I subsribe to both magazines). I originally cut it 6 years ago for my son and daughter in law. It is cut from 1/8 birch ply using #2 reverse tooth blades. I used my Delta 650 for the internal cuts ( easier blade changes on small pieces) and the hawk 426 for the external cuts ( more control). I just wish that I could put the delta blade clamps on the hawk. Life would be almost perfect then. I glued them up, sprayed them with white paint, and then added glitter. The only critical cuts are the half lap slots. These have to be straight and sized for the actual thickness of the plywood (a scrap piece insures this).

Once again, all criticisms and comments are gratefully accepted.

snowflake1.jpg I cut 1 each of the large ones, 2 of the medium
ones and 12 of the small ones.

Default 3D snowflake

I think the one in the middle is the same snowflake.
The other 2 I have made about 100 of them.

3D snowflakes are fun to make and everybody wants them from me, maybe because I give them away for free.

Nice work on those. 3D stuff is one area I have not tried yet, but it is fun to see the things people make.
