« Part 4: Starting the Assembly Part 5 of Making Wooden Flowers series Part 6: Adding Sepals (the Calyx) »

Assembling Rows Four to Seven

Adding rows 4 to 7 follows the same procedure as described in the previous section:

The photo below shows the fourth row glued together and ready for bending.

Notice again that the grain on these petals runs crosswise in order to create a soft curve when the row is bent and glued into a cone.

Here is the result after the centre rows have been inserted.

Remember to use the “centre guide” (see previous entry) to keep things aligned.

Row Five assembled and ready for bending.

After the rows One to Four have been inserted.

Row Six …

The final row!

This one is a very shallow cone – almost flat.

Here is the flower with all seven rows assembled.

Notice again how the crosswise petal grain helps to create gentle curves.

In the next step, the sepals will be added to the bottom of the rose…

Ron,

Thanks for the clarification on the grain directions. Your blog is really excellent. You actually make it look easy. The true test will come when I try to do it!
