What talent. That would take a lot of practice and a very steady hand.

That is a great way to make a Christmas tree. It’s beautiful.

The only negative thing about it is that it looks like a pretty big fire hazard. With all of that thin wood and exposed surface area I can see that quickly going up in flames if some how it accidentally got bumped too close to a candle flame while sitting on a table.

Great bit of work. You could tell by
the way he holds his tools that he has
made quite a few of these trees. I love
watching someone work who is
comfortable with their skills and tools.
