A lot can be done with cardboard and paint (or fabric covering)

Bad luck about the router.

Default Merry Christmas

Well the brushes came for the router and so did the pleater. The pleater is going to take some practice. Won't have any pics until after Christmas so I just wanted to say Merry Christmas to everyone.

Default Lithopanes

II make lithopane ornaments for the kids every year Thought I'd share 2 of them from this year. They are carvings in Corian countertop material They look like a crude cameo until you backlight them.
