It’s that time of year again and thought that I would attempt a Tree of my own, my father made a similar one when I was a child and thought it was my turn to make one.
I am always saddened come January time and see all the discarded Christmas Trees left out for the refuse collection.
It’s constructed of 18mm Birch Plywood, managed to get the whole lot from one sheet @1220mm x 2440mm, that’s a British standard sheet size, is it the same in America?, 8’x4’.
I was slightly concerned about the potential of a fire but carried out a burn test on, managed to get the candle directly under the Ply at 72mm and still no fire, it was more of a self assurance measure than anything else. I would never leave the tree unattended and at the same time would only light half the candles at any one time.
I’ve included a technical drawing as I know we all love them.
Hope you like and a very merry Christmas to all.
