These were all crafted from barn wood that we salvaged from an old Corn Crib. Cottonwood is light, strong, and takes paint so very nicely. This year we will have barn wood on the Christmas tree! Is there anything better than a handmade Christmas?
The Reindeer was cut by me! One of my first attempts on the scroll saw, you can tell that I picked a much simpler design than the details that Mr. Woodworker accomplished. Using the scroll saw is so easy and rewarding – it’s rather addictive, actually. Wait until you see what I have in the works for my Christmas decorations … 🙂 But that’s for another post.
Consider this your daily inspiration.
