I was going thru some picture for my sister when I found these. The deer was suppose to have a ring around the whole thing, but it broke while I was cutting it. I cut off the ring and decided to glue it to the circle, to make the thin pieces more stable. The deer is oak and the circle is stained oak ply.

The second picture is a replica of a patch that people, that work with MM III misslies, wear on their uniform. I used to wear one when I was in. It is walnut with oak background. The star was the hardest part of the piece. Trying to get the three diminsional look was a challenge. I cut several pieces before I finally figured out the right angles to get the look I wanted.

Great looking deer. Hate to bust on you but, how big? I like the insignia, the missile is cool. Was the star made of five pieces or ten? The reason I ask is I have a jig to make five point stars made up of ten pieces.

Thanks Darrell, I think he was about a 14 point, probably the new world record. LOL

The star is made out of 5 pieces. I would be interested in seeing your jig for the star.

I made my own jig using an idea from another LJ. It uses 5 pieces. I too would like to see the one for 10 pieces.
