Here are a couple of the ornaments I made for Christmas presents this year. I made six total. I decided to do something a little different than previous years. I laminated four scrap pieces of wood: cherry, curly walnut, sassafras, and redheart. I then rough cut the heart shapes on my scroll saw, and ripped the resultant shapes into 3 two-sided ornaments. I then cut out the crosses individually on each of the ornaments.

The scroll saw is not my forte, so the pictures are deliberately low-resolution to help hide mistakes :)

I finished the ornaments with a variety of different techniques. Tung-oil + poly, danish oil + poly, French polish, etc. The tung oil didn’t cooperate too well as far as drying time—good this I started before Thanksgiving!

I woodburned some of them and rounded the corners on a couple (at my wife’s request).

Thanks for looking and hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
