Tree ornament

The final project for this year, an ornament for our Christmas tree. It was made out of a piece of wood from our first Christmas tree. I made it as an additional last minute gift for my wife on the afternoon of the 24th of December.

This is my first time I used my electrical scroll saw for a serious project. I still have much to learn on how to use this tool. It sometimes felt a bit daunting to have the blade so close to my fingers, and I think I did not use the correct blade for this job. But I managed to saw the pattern without breaking the single blade I have.

To wrap up this project, I apply one coat of spray finish, as it is drying fast. It could have used an additional layer, but I did not have time for this.
