Snowflakes (post #92586)

I'm looking for an early article in FWW for an exacting cutting and gluing procedure for making wood snowflakes. I can't find it in the article search. Can anyone help? Eric

I've seen that article in one of the old copies I have at home. It involved a lot of rip cuts on the tablesaw and then glue-up laminations which were then crosscut to make individual snowflakes. If I remember correctly, the wood looked dark brown like a walnut. I'll try to go through my collection (#2 to current) this weekend unless you get the link before then.

Could be issue #73, pp. 68-70, "Constructing a Blizzard."
If you don't have that issue, let me know and I'll see if I can send you a copy.

Thank you. I was a subscriber for many years and gave my collection to a friend. I will have him check that issue before I ask you to send a copy. Eric

Snow flakes.. I have no idea what you want them for. Most Hobby shops have them at less than a US dollar each.. Reasonable unless you are planning a snow storm!

Have a great day.. Life is wonderful even if you are having a bad day!

Thanks for yours. I have found the technique was looking for. These are not cheap hobby-shop snowflakes. They are very precision assemblages of different hardwoods. Unique!
