This is a pattern by Roshaan Ganief . Although, more than not I have changed it just a tad. The crystal in the center is added. I have to ask my sister-in-law again what the crystal means, it was her idea to add it. She thought with this type of pattern it should have something that went with that mindset, so here it is.

The Budda is made of 1/8” Baltic Birch, painted black. It is glued to a piece of 19×15 plexiglass. At the top of the plexiglass two holes are drilled and fishing line is used for the hanger. It looks really cool on the wall, its as if it is floating.

Very well done. I’d like to find that pattern. My daughter-in-law is Buddhist. I’d love to make her something like that. Love to find a piece of jade to fit where that crystal is.

Some super fine scrolling Kelly. I like it being on the plexi, and the crystal really ads to it. Wow, nice one.

Thanks all, I had fun making this project.

PaulDoug I found the pattern in a book called Simply Wood by Roshaan Ganief. I would suggest stack cutting for stability. Its quite thin to make just one. I’ll bet Jade would look very nice.
