This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit the wings on it and so on. If you have not entered you should! This is a lot of fun and there are prizes. Thanks for looking at my project! There is a video if you are interested in watching.

It looks like you would need a hearty tree branch to hold that ornament.

Oh, what are the wings made out of? I like that wood.

Not at all this isi not that big.. wing span is about 6 inches and they are thin! the body a little more than 3 while i have not tried it yet I think it will be fine.

Looks great, Chris! It will definitely look nice on a tree this Christmas!

(By the way, maybe finish the last 1/8” of your cuts by hand….....?!)
