Default 3d Icicle Ornaments

Yesterday I embarked on trying 3d for the first time. I can't say enough about the patterns in the holiday issue. The seem so simple, but the finished turns out very remarkable.

Here are two I cut yesterday. I started with 2"x2" rough sawn ceder. It is actually very inexpensive. I still need to finish with some small files and then probably BWMO over that unless somebody has a better idea for finishing them.

I think I am also going to try gluing up a couple of pieces of contrasting wood to make my 1.25 and go with the fruit striped style. Will post those later.

Let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is certainly welcome as that's how we get better.


Here is yesterday's work:

So, you are suggesting I create work and then throw it away? That seems a little counter productive in nature lol

Kenny,

Your first attempts look a lot better than mine! What blade(s) are you using?
I should try some cedar probably..

Using Flyinh D #3 for the fret. #5 for the rest.

The cedar is nice, but it does leave strings. Not a huge issue.

I actually picked up a couple of different types of wood via Turning blanks, including stacked Bamboo. I am trying to finish off another large project for the grand-kids then I plan on cutting ornaments for days.....
