This is the second of five new candle trays that I designed in this series. I call this one “Duke” (SLD509 on my site)
I cut this one from 1/2” walnut on the scroll saw. I love walnut. For this tray, I simply finished it by spraying it with a couple coats of spray shellac. It really brings out the color and grain and looks very beautiful.
The center of the tray is cut on a slight bevel so that it can be pushed slightly down (back) into the frame and it locks into place, raising the frame ever so slightly up off the table and giving the piece interest and dimension.
You can see a video of me cutting this type of tray here:
I hope you like it. I loved cutting the flowing design. It is my favorite kind of fretwork.
Thanks for looking!
