Angels Christmas Ornament Scroll Saw Pattern.

This Christmas ornament has angels on each side. It is cut from 1/8" thick Baltic birch plywood to keep it light. I stack cut the angels so the ornament only takes minutes to complete. 

I get quite a few emails asking why I use Baltic birch plywood for ornaments. There are a few reasons. One is that the cost compared to hardwoods is less. When you are making many ornaments, the cost adds up with hardwood. 

I'm not saying that I don't use hardwoods for ornaments because I often do. When I want an ornament to have that special look of a beautiful hardwood then I grab the expensive stuff. I'll be honest with you that most people who receive the ornaments don't care what it is made from. Many even like the look of the plywood plies better. 

Some small ornaments can be a little fragile. BB ply is stronger than most hardwoods. Ornaments don't normally get handled a lot but they can break in storage when not packed well. The BB ply just holds up better.

I am completing lots of orders for personalized Christmas ornament patterns. If you need a supply of Baltic birch plywood, here is where I often order mine. These are affiliate links.

If you want to keep the weight of the ornament down then you can use 1/8" BB ply. 1/8" ply is a bit more difficult to cut so I suggest you go with the 1/4". If the project can be stack cut then using 1/8" works better.

If you want a more substantial ornament and easier to cut then you can go with the 1/4" BB ply.
This box of 12 sheets will net you around 48 ornaments.

These are sold through Amazon by Woodpeckers. I have had very good luck with these boards. I get very few defects. Every once in a while I get a couple boards that are a little warped. For ornaments that does not make much difference. I order several boxes of these boards a year so I have a pretty good feel for the quality.

I am completing the Personalized Ornament patterns at a decent rate. I think I am still on my three-day turnaround goal. Thanks for all the orders.

I am ready to start taking Personalized Christmas Ornament Pattern orders.

I can do first or last names but remember that more than ten letters will be more difficult to cut.

The order form will take up to 20 names for people and 5 names for pets. If you need more than 20/5 then start a second order.

You will not pay until you have the patterns and are 100% happy with them. There will be an invoice sent with the patterns to your email. You will have the option to pay securely with a credit card or send a check to the included address.

I am shooting for a three-day turnaround but that may be difficult for a few days until I get all the kinks worked out. I'll do my best. You can set a bookmark for each of the order forms but I will post them almost every day until Christmas.
