Hey LJ!

I came across this method of making these cool little wooden snowflakes a while back, this year I decided I would make some for Christmas. These ones are made for ash and cherry

If you want to see more about how they are made watch the video bellow and visit my website where I have also provided a PDF drawing on of the snowflakes.

Have a good one!

Very nice.
I made a bunch of these years ago using a router for all the little cuts.

Good job, I like what you have done.

Alex you always amaze me we your videos and woodworking talent .You’ve done an outstanding job. The only suggestion
I might offer is that you might also tell the people in states what the measurements are in inches.

i just tried to make these and i can’t get my tablesaw’s angle correct.
i am using a cheezy angle finder and my bevel gauge, so its not very accurate. what did you use to set the angle on your table saw.

You might look for a better saw blade to avoid those burned edges. Tenryu has figured out how to make the heat of a cut go off with the chip and virtually eliminate burning. A touch more speed through the cut will help as well. Keep up the good work and videos.
