This is a nativity set that we use every year. It was a project my wife started on the scroll saw and was finding that the curves of the mating pieces were not matching up with the bigger parts so she handed it off to me to finish. We have since added the walnut manger in the background and the three kings. All are in red oak and walnut. Many of the figures are holding oil lamps filled with liquid parrafin that does not blacken the ceiling like the regular lamp oil did. The flow of the grain in the oak looks like fabric in the sides of the figures.
I thought it wold be fitting to post this at this holy time of the year! We must remember what this season is all about!!
