Still More Ornaments

These were made from Glowforge 1/8" maple and walnut. I cut the same pattern in both woods, then swapped colors as desired. The Kerf is small enough not to be noticed, and produces a nice fit. After assembly, I rubbed wood glue on the front face (Kerf was wider on front) and worked it into the seams. Then a wet paper towel was used to remove the excess glue from both sides. Set them on waxed paper to dry, and everything held in place nicely. Even the back looks nice!

Artwork was derived from one of the Glowforge Clip Art snowflakes, and modified in Illustrator.

Great idea to use the interchangeable pieces on each ornament. The mix of colors on each one looks good too. I was thinking that the kerf would be wider but it looks fine.
