Jig for making miniature trees


This is a curious oproject originated because my 12y old son had to build a model of an ecosystem for his biology class. He decided to purchase some miniature trees, but they were way to expensive for a model to be used only once and then put away for good. He though of making them instead and googled some models and methods until we fuond a video at Youtube which shows the manufacturing of the jig and the trees tehmselves.

The process is in a Blog entry I wrote (hobbycarpinteria.blogspot.mx) which also links to the original video where we learnt from. The text is in Spanish, but there is a Google Translator tab on the right column for switching to English

Hope you enjoy and drop some comments to know what you think and learn from the best of the best
