This is a project I completed last fall, my first lichterbogen. 1/8” baltic birch ply, battery powered 10 light string. It’s about 9” wide and 12” tall, maybe 1.75” deep. My son and I will be making a couple more for this seasons holiday craft fairs.

I wish I had taken better pictures, but all we had at the time was a phone camera.

Thanks for looking.

Excellent work! Did you get your Excalibur saw? If so, how do you like it? Is this a German design?

Hi Jim,
Yes, finally received the saw in early June. I love the saw, had to get used to it’s quirks after all the cutting I had done on the little 2 speed Dremel (which my son has now, and does amazing things with it!) The lifting top arm, variable speed control, and foot switch make it a joy to use.

The design is from a book called “The Big Book of Christmas Ornaments and Decorations” and they call it a Winter Woodland Arch.
