Away In A Manger

Since I am going out of my mind because I can’t do anything with this back pain, I got a wild idea to go out into my freezing cold garage and make a nativity scene.

I don’t know why. It just came to me.

Anyway, I spent all morning with my scroll saw making the manger and the Jesus, Mary and Joseph figurines. I stained the manger, but am doing some funky painting on the figures before I stain them. Will it work out? I don’t know. If not, I’ll just re-cut them.

I still have to make all of the wise men, angels and animals, of course, but here’s a sneak peak just in case it turns out really cool!

I apologize for the crappy pic. I had to take it with my cell phone camera because I can’t find my expensive digital camera anywhere! Hmmmmmmmmmm. Sounds like a search of the kids’ rooms is in order, don’t you think?
