This is the second installment to the nativity set gifts I began giving last year. Last year was Mary, Joseph and the Baby Jesus. This year the three wisemen Nine sets in all. They are made with scrap maple, walnut and oak. The tallest one is about 3 1/2 inches. Finished with lemon oil and Deft clear lacquer.

Grace and Peace on every LJ family.

There’s no better use of scrap wood! Nice work, John!
