I made the following Twisted Christmas Tree that was inspired by Steve Carmichael:

My portions are quite a bit different. I started out with 3/4” pine boards. It turned out to be over 5” tall. I am not sure if I like the overall proportions,. I may turn it into two smaller trees by taking out every other section. It is not glued together, so it should be able to come apart. Overall though, I do like the concept and it was fun to build.

Wow Jay, that is so awesome that you made one of these! It’s 5 feet tall? That is too cool. I didn’t glue mine together either, in case I needed to store it, but my wife let me keep mine out all year long. Thanks for posting it!

I like it. Thanks for posting the video link as well as that was inspirational. Think I am going to have to do this with my son this weekend. May reduce the sizes by 1/2 instead of 1/4 which should produce a fatter/shorter tree. We’ll see how that turns out.
Well done.
