Having purchased a Scroll Saw, I was looking for a project to put it to use. Was wrapping up our kitchen remodel at the time and came up with a different sort of valance for the area over the sink.
The wife is a dragonfly fan, so of course a couple dragonfly’s were in order, along with a wheatstalk pattern from one of the woodworking magazines in my collection.
The 5 panels are held in place with turnbuttons on the back, so panels can be replaced. I am planning on making a number of panels for holiday themes, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, 4th of July, etc, along with a number of panels if I find a pattern I like and want to try.
Frame is Hickory with standard tongue and groove joinery, panels are 1/4” Hickory ply. 2 each 18” flourescent lights were mounted on the ceiling behind the valance for effect.
Thanks for looking.
