I enjoy making presents each year for my co-workers and Bible Study members. The annual challenge is to find a project that lends itself to easily fabricating about 30 gifts without spending months in my workshop (something I’d like but my wife might not appreciate!).

This was an ideal solution from Darth Maverick and Steve Ramsey. Mine were made from maple and cherry, glued together and clamped (I couldn’t get enough clamping force from rubber bands). I added a small hole for an ornament hanger, which came in handy for the Danish Oil finish.

I made a total of 108 snowflakes of 4 different designs so each person could get at least 3 unique snowflakes.

Very clever and even more thoughtful. I like your finishing technique with the coffee cup.

Thanks for sharing.

Merry Christmas
