Two of the best seasons, we all might agree on, should be the BBQ and holiday season! Greg has them both covered in his latest projects he submitted.
"I just downloaded the Home for the Holidays No.5 and there are so many great ideas here. I started with this one but not sure which one I want to do next. Thanks for the new project and thanks for the ideas! This is going to make a great gift."
"The Board is ¾” cherry and the stockings are cut from ½” cherry and glued on. I’ve got a couple of coats of wipe on poly so far. The font on the board is Grand Hotel, and the font on the stockings is Cooper Black."
We love that this will be part of someone's holidays for years to come! The contrast in the mold board finish and the stocking... but the pop of the paint on the holly is the perfect festive touch.
"Attached are a couple of "in the process" pix. After your tutorial and suggestions I decided to carve the plaque and ribbon and do the other models as an applique, and it's working out great! A little more sanding and touch up before I put the final finish on it."
We are so glad we could give you a hand with this one... it turned out so nice! Excellent job Greg!

This is a response to a question left below.
"For the Christmas project I used a 1/4" end mill for the roughing and pocket and a 1/8' ball nose for the finishing toolpath on the plaque. I used a 3/16" ball nose for the finishing on the stockings as they did not too much detail. I used 1 60 degree v-groove for all the text.
On the Q-master sign I used a 1/4" end mill for all the roughing and clearing and a 1/8" ball nose for all the finish except for the banner where I used a 3/16" ball nose. Again there wasn't as much detail so I thought it might save some time, and it's easier to sand the broader surface. I hope this helps! Greg"
