Decided to come up with a way of displaying greeting cards this year, rather than taping them to the wall. Here's a PDF if you'd like a few templates to cut out.

Could have done without the cheery Christmas song in the background… now it’s stuck in my head…

Love the videos! I never miss one!

At 3:55, are you pulling the material toward you as you cut out the H? Personal preference, or…?

Very nice. That is a great idea so you don’t have a bunch of cards floating around the house.

Another great project and video, Steve! I was glad to see you giving that scroll saw a little bit of a work out! I liked the music, too. I haven’t played Christmas music yet but I think that this weekend I will start.

I really love your projects. They are fun and cute and not too difficult for any level of woodworker. Thanks again for a wonderful presentation!

JJohnston: I was using a spiral blade in my saw. I recently discovered the wonders of being able to move work pieces in all directions! But the blades seem to break really easily.

I like this one as well as the clown toothpick holder. And yes I watched the toothpick holder video. Steve I might have to whip up one of those for the wife. Great job.

Haha! OMG…the clown toothpick holder. That does go back a ways! That was one of those projects I’d like to rewind.

This one really is a quick project. I actually started building it yesterday afternoon. I didn’t think I was going to have a video for this week, until I started playing around with that scrap of metal.

Don’t rewind. It was animated like a jack in the box. That would keep my grandson memorized four hours. Ma-bee three..:0

Hi Steve.

You did it again! Congrats!

I’d make one for casa tiny, but we have a tradition that’s older than me here, namely a cord or two stretched across the top of the living room window and hanging them by the fold. Easy, doesn’t leave tape residue and it makes a colorful display.

Have a wonderful safe holiday.
