Craft & Design Woodworking Workshop
DIY Industrial Christmas Ornament


Love the look of wood mixed with metal? This simple tree ornament is a great way to use up spare materials kicking around the shop.


This project can be created by makers both young and old. The wood cutting can be done with a scroll saw (for the younger, less experienced makers), or could be produced even faster with a CNC machine.

If you have access to a specialty wood store, try using different varieties of exotic wood. Don’t forget to use a finishing oil or varnish to bring out their natural colors.

To get the full tutorial on this project head over to the Sawdust and Embryos blog.

  1. Reblogged this on ARISE-TO-TRASH and commented:
    Good idea!
    Now instead of using fresh wood for the rings, why not experiment with rubber washers, vinyls, CDs, plastic, salveged leather, (painted) corrugated cardboard, gears or other disc-shaped objects?

    And for the bolts/nuts? What about pony/wooden/glass beads, pop bottle lids, pieces of cork, Barbie heads, the erasers on the ends of pencils, dried plant seeds or anything, really!
