Finished! - 2 x4 Christmas trees

Sorry it took so long to get this posted, but I did finish it on Thursday! These are just the first two I made. Ya know, to make sure it was going to work out OK. I am making a whole slew of these trees to give as neighbor gifts this Christmas (along with some yummy treat). I am considering putting a little garland of red berries. Now, I just have to find a tiny garland of red berries.
I loved the wood block trees I saw on The Wood Connection blog, but I don't live anywhere near there. And, I recently got a double bevel compound miter saw, so I thought a wood block tree with angled edges would be more fun to make. These were easy and fun!
The only hard part was getting the stars right. I started out buying some pre-cut wood stars and they didn't work for a variety of reasons. In the end, my good friend, Kathy, cut the stars for me with her scroll saw. So much better.

  1. I love them! I like them better with the angled edges.
