For several years I have been building a christmas tree that I want to share with you, I hope you like it and I hope you build it
Step 1: Cutting the Wood
I start the building process with some pine wood sticks the measures are ¾” thick and 4 feet long with a fillet.
Then I cut the sticks in 20 parts starting from 3” to 11” with increments of 3/8”.
Step 2: Drilling Process
After the cuts I drill a hole of ½” thick in the middle of each piece, and two 3/16” holes that don’t go through all the stick, each one of this holes in the extreme of the stick, the purpouse of this holes is to hold the lollipops.
You can see the progress with all the sticks cut to the correct meassure and with the 3 holes
Step 3: Sanding the Sticks
After all the sticks are cut and drilled I sand the sticks
Step 4: The Stand
The tree stand it’s made with two parts: the first one with a 1 ½”x12” piece with a ½” drill hole in the center of the piece, and two pieces of stick that are glued at the extreme of that stick. The second one its a 8 ½”x 1½” with a ½”drill hole in the center. In the second piece (the one that is at the bottom of the tree) the rounded ½” stick its glued. After it dries you can instert the wood pieces. I usually do the finish with some almond/danish oil.
