My wife had this old cardboard Nativity scene from her childhood and she asked me if could make it better. I wasn't gonna post it because it kinda sucks but she said that I should, because she loves it and it is much better than the original. The figurines are a little pittiful, and I completly copied the design of the original. It's made with 1/4 exterior Luan ply and some scrap Mahogany for the glue blocks, and roof edging. I picked up a new light for it at Lowe's, the old one had cloth covered wires and several bare spot in that. The base is Cherry. Yes I got majorly sidetracked from my new DT jig, but I kept the LOML happy, and "If Mama's happy, everone's happy". Thanks for looking, Dave:)



And with the light on and no flash

Copied or not.......thats a nice job Dave. Did you use a scrollsaw to cut out the walls?

Dave, you're being a little hard on yourself. It looks great! In fact it looks better that most I see in people's homes.

Now get back to that DT Jig!

DL, I cut the whole thing out with the scroll saw, it was just as easy as cutting the straight outside parts on the BS, and I needed the practice.

Tim, the camera adds much to the picture, really it isn't one of my best works, but if the wife is happy with it I've done my job. I really should have a taken a picture of the original, it was almost comical.

It was nice to be able to recreate this from her childhood one. I know that meant a lot to her. Regardless of how you feel the craftmanship is, it's great.
