Most excellent. I have been eager to see the pics of it. Been so busy with the “new” job, I haven’t had a chance to update on my progress. Well, there isn’t any. Keep on truckin’ man.

Very impressive William! This is beyond my patience level! You could probably make your own S hooks out of copper wire bent into shape. I have done that before to hang Christmas ornament hangers. If you don’t want copper you could use aluminum wire as well.

This is really wonderful, William. Did you already have a buyer for it, or are you keeping it for yourself? I really appreciate your explaining how you did everything here. It just adds to my amazement and respect for your skill. You are awesome! Keep those projects coming, as you are a wonderful inspiration to us all!

Could you make the “dangly” danglers by using some wire to make an S-hook?

I have thought of various ways I could make my own s-hooks for the dangleys. It’s one of those situations though that I want what I want or nothing at all, and I wanted brass to match the brass chain that it hangs from. Besides, I think it looks great without them.

That’s Awesome. I’m impressed.
How Big was your Saw? I have a 16” Saw. Would that be too small for a Job like that. I’m going to assume it is lol cause it looks pretty large.

Handi, this was cut on a 16” Delta SS250. It can be cut on a 16”. However, the middle cuts on the larger pieces will have to be cut with spiral blades, because you will not have room to turn it. From the questions I asked from several other people that have cut this one, I was told that it took a minumum of an 18” to cut, but doing some measuring made me believe otherwise, and the proof of that is in the finished piece. With spirals, and a 16” saw, as long as something isn’t over 32”, it can be cut. With this chandelier though, the large pieces were cut from 1/4” plywood, stacked six high, and has detailed enough cuts that you have to use small blades. I used Flying Dutchman #3 spirals. I went through about four dozen blades on this project.
