Not A Charlie Brown Christmas Tree December 24, 2014

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, People.

This is amazing to watch ~ a woodworking project that will come in handy if the needles fall off your tree before Christmas arrives.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Whittling – a uniquely male pursuit.

What confidence, focus and skill!!

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

I enjoyed watching his precision.

I’m hoping the appliance repairman has the same degree of confidence, focus, and skill when he arrives. Our refrigerator died last night. HO~HO~OH~NO!

Val Boyko - December 24, 2014

Bummer Nancy! Miracles can happen at this time of year 🙂

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

Miracle #1 ~ Repairman arrived within an hour on Christmas Eve.
Miracle #2 ~ He diagnosed and fixed the fridge in under an hour.
Miracle #3 ~ We didn’t lose any food because the fridge at the clubhouse was empty and waiting.
Miracle #4 ~ They only charged us for parts . . . NOT!

Ah, well . . . 3 out of 4 ain’t bad.

Nancy, this was wonderful and I enjoyed looking at this! It is nice to have a unique post to gaze upon. Merry Christmas Eve to you and yours!

We had a couple over for Happy Hour last night. Joe told us about the video and shot us the link. I felt it was a perfect post for Christmas Eve.

4. Crowing Crone - December 24, 2014

what a work of beauty. This was just delightful to watch. And here’s hoping new fridge has arrived and is working well with not much fuss or muss overall.

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

Glad you enjoyed & thanks for the good wishes.

The heat sensor for the auto defrost as been replaced. Fingers crossed, the fridge is fixed. Merry Christmas!

Crowing Crone - December 24, 2014

oh yay. much better than having to buy a new one for sure.

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

I did NOT want to spend Christmas Eve shopping for a new fridge and it looks like it’s up and running and we are back on track to have a Cool Yule!

5. Valleygrail - December 24, 2014

That was fascinating to watch. He is very skilled! So hoping your refrigerator is feeling better!

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

Thanks, VG. It seems like it’s a happy camper again . . . and we’ve restocked it. Fingers crossed we have a Cool Yule!

Glad you enjoyed the video. I thought his trees were amazing.

6. thecontentedcrafter - December 24, 2014

I just shared this to a friend via facebook – it’s great for Christmas morning too 🙂 Thank you and Happy Christmas 🙂

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

Thanks, Pauline. Glad you enjoyed and shared. Have a Merry and Bright day (and night).

7. Pix Under the Oaks - December 24, 2014

That is fascinatingly beautiful!

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

We’re so glad that Joe sent us the clip last night . . . after a delightful happy hour. They are good peeps!

Have an awesome time tomorrow. Wish CH the Merriest of Days from us.

Thanks for sharing this. It’s amazing such a pretty tree could be created that way. He’s quite talented.
Merry Christmas!

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

I found it quite fascinating to watch him turn a needle-less twig into a fabulous tree. Thanks for stopping by. Merry Christmas.

9. Eric Tonningsen - December 24, 2014

Wow!! Needleless trees; perhaps a new trend though I don’t mind sweeping them up post-holiday. 🙂

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

Growing up, my parents bought live trees which we planted after the big day. They never lost many needles. On occasion, they got tipped over by one of the Great Danes searching for a big ole bone hidden in the branches.


Have a wonderful time watching the tail end of 2014 disappear.

10. Lily Lau - December 24, 2014

Nope, definitely not a Charlie Brown Christmas tree! 😀

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

It might look good with Linus’s blanket wrapped around the base!

11. Barb - December 24, 2014

That was fascinating to watch, he obviously loves what he does and what a beautiful, unique result of all that precision and care.
Hope you manage to get your fridge repaired; that’s one thing we can’t do without!

nrhatch - December 24, 2014

The fridge is happily humming something about Jack Frost nipping at its nose. Fingers crossed it doesn’t pull a Frosty and melt again.

Here’s to a Cool Yule! 😎

12. jannatwrites - December 25, 2014

He makes it look effortless, but there is a great deal of skill involved in this. Beautiful result! I’m glad your fridge was fixed 🙂

nrhatch - December 25, 2014

Thanks, Janna!

Very interesting.
Have a wonderful Xmas Nancy.
Lots of love.

nrhatch - December 25, 2014

Thanks, Kathy. Hope your day is filled with warmth and wonder with lots of Peace, Hope, Joy, Love, and Light.

14. Jill Weatherholt - December 25, 2014

That is amazing, Nancy! Thank you for sharing and Merry Christmas!

nrhatch - December 25, 2014

Have a wonderful day, Jill . . . from first to last. It’s been great getting to know you this year.

Jill Weatherholt - December 25, 2014

Thank you, Nancy. I feel the same, it’s been a great year. Ugh…what is wrong with me? I can’t UNPLUG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

nrhatch - December 25, 2014

Haha! I like to take a quick peek . . . but I unplugged from 8:30-6:30. And now we’re going to watch a Christmas movie.

No Bah Humbugs are we! :mrgreen:

15. Three Well Beings - December 25, 2014

My goodness but that is beautiful! What a unique art!

nrhatch - December 26, 2014

That’s what I thought ~ if I’d seen a tree in a craft stall, I would never have been able to work backwards to how it was made.

16. Tiny - December 26, 2014

Amazing precision! And a very beautiful – and durable – tree as a result!

nrhatch - December 26, 2014

I found it fascinating to watch his process.
