    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    I made my first display in 1969 and put it on 3/8" masonite. Because over 40 years the decals tend to fade so I just ordered my third set. Will have to make another camel this year as someone stole one of mine.

    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    got this over the summer of '13. whole family helped to build it (wife & 2 sons [7 & 9]). we used MDO plywood (sign-making quality & weatherproof). took 3 sheets. used titebond III glue as it is waterproof. figures tended to wrinkle when gluing down so be careful. cut them out with a jigsaw - time consuming. mounted to ground with t-posts and t-post fence adapters. lit with 1 led worklight. manger/stable bought from local hardware store near plastic nativity figures. received many compliments on it and hope it lasts for years to come. probalby had $200 to $300 in materials on this project since i used t-post adapters - but my area is really windly and needed the additional support!

    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    I am ordering another set of posters. I have had mine for 10 years and although the muted colors have faded it would be serviceable for several more years. I took the time to cut each piece out of 1/2" plywood and sanded the rough edges and sealed both sides and edges with black exterior latex paint and have had no problem with warping. I also purchased 3/4" aluminum pipe and screwed "U" pipe strapping to each piece to secure to the ground. I just loosen the straps and pound the pipe in the ground (big pieces need two) then snug the hardward back in place. I am active duty Navy and have put this up in 9 different cities...it literally stops traffic - I place hay bales in a random pattern and line pieces up...they are very real looking. This year I am placing them under some 8' palm trees...when I add the hay bales it will be breathtaking. If you want a nativity scene in your yard - 2 days to put this together the first year and you will enjoy it for years. I took a black marker and outlined all the white edges that I missed when I cut them out...and from 3 feet away none of the color mismatch is noticable. A Christmas must for me! -Jackie

    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    I was 14 years old when my father took on this very project of the nativity scene. I am now 39 years old and it is holding up as the day my Dad and I put this together. the trick from day one was to apply a protective coating every season, as my dad stressed. I have this now, that I set up every holiday with my own 3 children and it brings back so many memories. I live in a climate that has the harshest weather in the world and with time & patience you can keep forever. as well from day one we attached poles & base plates behind the figures to keep from direct contact to the ground. The corners are starting to show a little wear but I am sure it will last some time longer.

    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    All the families on my street did a nativity scene as a project. It took a full weekend to glue on the full color cutouts and cut the plywood. We then put on a coat of polyurethane. After four years it is time to build a new set. The polyurethane did cause yellowing which I hope to avoid this time.

    Comments about Woodworking Project Paper Plan to Build Nativity Scene :

    As a previous poster noted, if you look at the posters in the box, the printing isn't as good as the promotional photos. In addition, not all creases in the poster come out, though the vast majority of them really do relax, after the glue dries. The faded color issue isn't as bad as it looks, though - once a clear poly coat is applied, the details pop out. Overall, I'd do it again.
