These are so fun to make, after i did these i ended up make all sorts of other designs. American flag, checker board, and a cross to name a few. The sandwich log is what i was calling it LOL

Thanks for sharing and bringing back memories

Nice.
I too made a bunch of those years ago. Really fun. I also used a router bit on the router table to create other kinds of notches.

They make nice mobiles too. Also I just tied on to a gift package as decorations. Because you end up with a blizzard of them.

You all are speaking in tongues. Someone post a link already on how to do this :-p

Looks like just using the table saw to cut some kerfs into thewood and then glueing together and then bandsawing wafers out of.

Love it, would make a great gift of several snowflake ornaments in a nice wooden box. Gonna have to find details on this somewhere and get started on the next series of gifts.

Konaman: Below is a link to make the snowflakes. I am sure there are others out there.

This was posted by Steve of Woodworking for Mere Mortals fame. It shows a video for step by step instructions.

These snowflakes are a ton of fun to make.

Spudhogg: The snowflakes look great. Your initial picture was great—The snowflakes appear to be falling by the use of holding a flake, the log and the flakes on the table saw. Super job any way you look at it.
