The Great Ornament Show-off Thread - 2017 Edition


#101

thanks!

nope, not acrylic. i thought that might be heavier/thicker than i wanted (i don’t have any really thin acrylic, all 1/8"). so i just cut the outline shape out of some thick red card stock and used white glue on the back of the reindeer to glue it on.


#102

Aha, I thought they didn’t quite have that acrylic gleam to them. Very cool.


#103

no, definitely not. i think i like that back a little more muted like the wood. it’s actually the same cardstock that the two red/white round reindeer are made of (duplexed red/white neenah columns paper).


#104

I agree, the paper is a great match to the wood. Love seeing how the duplexed Neenah looks – just started running a few paper engraving tests last night and am intrigued by the possibilities.


#105

I haven’t done much with engraving it yet. One early test that was so-so, other than that all cutting.


#106

Getting a head start on 2018…

Missed it by that much, Chief.


#107

No Thingiverse


#108

Oh, sorry, I missed that rule. :thinking:


#109

He was answering your question “your design?”, not saying we shouldn’t use Thingiverse. :wink:

#111

Oh, I derp, you’re right. @TripleJKnifeWorks nice job, carry on!


#112

I use an x-acto knife at the corners of the tape, then roll/scrape the sticky side of the tape I’ve taken off back and forth on the piece. Works good for the super small pieces


#113

Thanks for all the posts! I’ve been inspired to attempt an ornament for the family get together this year. I used pegs cut from medium draftboard to hold it together and let the kids color it. Hopefully, we get an ornament design contest going over the holidays! Cheers!


#114

Made a logo for our shop, then made ornaments for the guys.


#115

Not really an ornament, nor a gift tag…just something with Christmasy colors to send to my brother in New Mexico with a letter. Colored with oil-based markers and some embossing powder for the gold plant pot. (not my own artwork)

Because I have a laser and because I can…


#116

Beautiful coloring!


#117

Last minute ornament for my daughter’s art teacher. I can’t believe I almost forgot her!


#118

This design is adorable! So perfect for a teacher.


#119

A crest of my wife’s family’s clan!


#120

Made about 20 of these for my friends and family (and dog) :slight_smile:
