Wood carving Christmas idea
- Supplies Needed
- scrap wood
- angle grinder
- coarse grit flap disk (60 grit)
- scroll saw (if you don’t have one, you can also cut out shapes with a jigsaw, band saw, or make squares/diamonds on a miter saw if it’s easier… just always be smart about it!
- wood stain (I used this and this)
- drill bit and drill
Step 1: Add texture to some thin scrap wood.
Experiment with different textures: one using the grinder at a 45 degree angle, one making marks along the grain, and one going against the grain. Repeat the pattern on both sides for best effect.
Step 2: Mark ornament outlines
Step 3: Cut out shapes on scroll saw
Sometimes it sucks to think you can’t do a tutorial if you don’t have one of the tools, but not having a scroll saw can be easily worked around! If you don’t have a scroll saw, it’s still possible to cut out alternative shapes, such as diamonds with a miter saw or larger ornaments with a jigsaw. Just be careful.
