Snowflakes to hang from a Christmas tree.
These are made on the tablesaw mostly. Each of 6 pieces have identical notches cut in them to be symmetrical, then the 6 pieces are glued together, first in pairs to make a V shape and then 3 of those V shapes put together to form the shape in a long log. Then the snowflakes are cut in slivers using the bandsaw. The snowflakes are then sanded and varnished.
I made about 100 of these.

All made per Steve Ramsey

I saw this episode of WWMM, thought it was a cool idea. Glad to see you took it and ran with it. I like how you used different colored woods.

Thanks for sharing!!!

These are nice with all of the symmetry and contrast.

Cool project. The mixed woods is a nice touch.
