Weihnachtspyramide Finished Product


Here is my final design for the weihnachtspyramide. It uses a tinker toy dowels and cog with a finishing nail as the spindle as well as 2 more finishing nails cut to stubs to make the spindle holder. I designed the tree in the middle to be lightweight and functional as it holds the nail and the dowel in place. I added a base plate with the Burning Salmon logo to make the main part an enclosed box. The neck section is removable and is held on by some cross pins. I stained the main structure in a dark walnut. The arms and platforms are a light cherry. The trees and some of the arms are in a rustic sage green.

The bases are decorated in trees and snowflakes. The candle cups are a diamond grip grid pattern that I see a lot on older candle holders. Some of the stems have edelweiss while some are plain.

I also designed some extensions for the candle cups to be able to load in the German taper candles (Pyramidenkerzen) instead of the puck candles.

I'm planning on selling the design files on Etsy as well as making physical ones.

Batesville Christmas Bazaar 2023


Another good year at the local Christmas bazaar hosted by Beta Sigma Phi.

The comments we received this year:

  • Your prices are too low
  • Oh, D&D. I'm not interested.You shouldn't have lead with that. *puts monster book down and walks away angry*
  • Can you make this with other colors? (Yes, got a few custom orders to make over the next few weeks.)

We sold every Schwibbogen I made and a few extras I need to make. We only sold 2 of the weinachtpyramides, but I got a message after the show to buy 2 of them.
