I came across the how to make wooden flowers series by Ronbrush and had to give it a try.

Cutting them out was taking me a very long time so I wanted to make my own petal punch like he mentions in #3 of his lesson. Using part of an old bandsaw blade this is what I came up with.
The petal punch works very well and makes it much faster for me.
My flowers aren’t nearly as good as his but I’m getting better.

I like those flowers.
A fair amount of work for a lot of beauty.
I am going to have to try that too!

Cool! I’ve never seen anyone make wooden flowers before. Never would have thought of it.

That is an ingenious method to make flower petals. You did a great job on making this tool. I would say that you did an excellent job of following his method. Your next punch will be even better. Congratulations.
