SUPPLIES

1/2H ash (or any other nicely grained wood): SV-T x 17'/2rf l/8w- to i/4,1-thick plywood: 8 W x 171/2°

3. Chamfer all edges about l/i6w to i/h".

Nativity

SUPPLIES

3/4"-thick clear ash: HW x 12" W- to i/4N-thick plywood: 83/8" x 12"

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Apply one Nativity pattern from page 184 to pine.

2. Cut the wood. Drill small blade-threading holes; one at an inside frame corner and one along the bottom edge of the child's face.

3. Chamfer the edges.

4. Color and finish the segments.

Note: Do not attempt to glue the segments together edge to edge as is the usual practice. Because of the integral frame cut around all the segments, large gaps between segments may result unless you use precautions in assembly due to the accumulation of space resulting from the many saw kerfs. Instead, prepare the plywood backer and glue the cut and finished frame to it. Only after the glued frame has set should the remaining pre-finished segments be glued down, keeping equal gaps between the segments with small cardboard spacers (see photos, below).

Because of the surrounding frame and many saw keifs, excessive space may result unless all segments an* spaced evenly.

Small pieces of cardboard are inserted between segments to space them uniformly as they are glued to a plywood backer;
