Our friends had a baby a few months ago which celebrated his first Christmas this past year.

While getting their Christmas tree, the guy cutting their tree down gave them a section of the rough stump to use and they asked me to create an ornament to mark the baby’s 1st Christmas.

I created the one on the right first, using both my CNC Router and scrollsaw, but I thought it looked too plain.

I was able to harvest a 2nd slice from the stump and created the one on the left.

I gave both of them to the parents last night and they loved them – I don’t quite know which one they will use, but I suppose it really doesn’t matter now, does it. :-)

They both look great. I use a scroll saw but not a CNC. I think the one on the left stands out to me and seems to be a bit more personal.

Both nice, but I like the one on the left best.

So did I, and I think so did Logan’s parents. :-)

Thanks for the compliments!
