Her Christmas trees have been a huge hit just as I predicted. If you did not have time to buy this pattern yet jump at the opportunity right now. When you cut this pattern you will be making a piece of art that will be handed down in your family for generations to come. Just imagine your Great, Great, Great Grandchild finding this Christmas Tree and reading your name on the back and the date 2014. The feeling of connection through the generations will be special.

NW956 Large Christmas scenes tree 18" x 11.1" $8.95
My Nativity wreaths depict the birth of Jesus and the first one is more elaborate than the second. Cut the wreaths directly in hardwood, or use 1/8" (3mm) birch ply for the design, attached to a thicker wood backer. For a lighted version: Drill some holes in the backer in strategic positions and fit a string of 10 fairy lights to the back, to allow the lights to shine through some of the fret cuts.
NW965 Nativity wreath 11" x 10.7" $7.95
This set of relief-cut trees was added to the section Holidays>Christmas>Trees. Five of the trees consist of four pieces each, while the other three each have three work pieces. Wood thickness for each layer is 1 1/2" (38mm). I used Jelutong (similar to Basswood), which not only makes cutting this thickness a breeze, but is also easy to sand by hand. Each section is cut at a particular tilt angle in order to achieve the desired effect. A base pattern is also included and is made from 1/2" to 5/8" (12mm to 16mm) wood. A piece of 1/4" (6mm) diameter dowel is used to join the tree to the base. Detailed instructions are included.
