Ella and I made a nativity today. She sketched the characters and I cut the wood on my scroll saw. She sanded (some of it) and I wood burned the faces she drew on. It was my first time using my wood burner, so I didn't let her try it, but I think next time I will let her do it. It is (very) hot, but not really complicated to maneuver.
All in all, it was a fun and not terribly time consuming project, so that is always a win. If it takes too long, it rarely gets finished.
Incidentally, I do take full credit for the elephant, which was not originally part of the manger scene, but I worked on that today, too, and it does kind of round things out. Plus, he doesn't have any friends to be with yet.
I love power tools.
