We have couple of Grandkids for a few days and have to keep them busy so I thought a little time in the shop would be good to spend with them .
Here is a flower made from wood that MOMO my Granddaughter and I made today .
We started with shaping a block of white aspen to a leaves shape with the band saw and sander and then clamped it in the vise and took of shavings .
This way of doing it saved us cutting each leaf with scissors and also gave us a much nicer edge on the leaf .
Just a tray with heated fine sand on the burner
We followed this with some sand shading and gave some colour to the leaves .
Now a soaking in water to soften the leaves .
Now dry the leaves for a bit and start assembling using a piece of masking tape as a base and CA glue to glue each petal to the next .
Next we made a little round center piece to finish the flower using a small pull saw making some cross cuts and sanding it to shape and gluing it in place . To finish a couple coated of lacquer .
Fun little project and a happy little girl and some good time in the shop with her .
