Default Nativity scene

Here's one we're almost done with. It's cut out of 3/4" pine and we have to do the base for it yet. Not sure if we should stain it in golden oak or just clear coat it. Hope the pic shows up, this is the first time posting with a pic!

Great work!!! Can I ask where you got the pattern? My wife is bugging me for a nice nativity scene.

BTW: The pic comes across very nicely

Nice work, I also would like to know who's pattern it is.
Regarding the staining, If it were mine I would just put a natural oil base finish on it.
If you make it too dark you will lose the detail.
Play with the scraps to see what looks good to you.
Another thing I have done in the past is put either blue velum, or frosted plastic on the back of things like this, made the base bigger behind it to fit a tea light. It makes really cool at night.

Just my thoughts.

I looked up "nativity scene" on Google images and found one I liked. Enlarged the image and deleted some of the detail I didn't really want and this is what I ended up with. I will be making the base large enough in the back to fit maybe 3 tealights, Rolf! Good call!

Very nice. I also like Rolf's idea and yours with the candles. Nice job with the pattern, too.

Looks like woodpix used this image. I do not see any copyrights in the pic or on the website Globe International

Default That's the one!

Yes, that's the image! Left out some animals and other small details but also made sure first about the copyright thing!

That is one great thing about scrolling...You can make each piece unique by adding or deleting parts.
