    I’ve also been busy making stars for people. It’s been fun making these. On the one hand quite simple, but still requiring accuracy and careful fitting to get them neat. At times I ran into end grain issues, where the two pieces had alternating grain direction, causing tear out during planing.

    The black star is for a friend who loves all things black. It’s made of oak which I ‘ebonised’ using vinegar soaked in steel wool.

    Nice stars, Robert. I also switched to the cardscraper a few times because of opposing grain.

    I enjoy working wood in Germany.

    A few more stars to add to the mix. These are maple and walnut. Inset in pieces of cardboard to make them easier to wrap.

    Charlie, you have been busy. They look great. I like the idea of insetting them in the cardboard for wrapping them.

    Mark, the ash and walnut was a good choice. Sharp.
