This is the fourth project that I designed in my series of seasonal scroll sawn candle trays. They will fit under any large jar-type candle and are fun and easy to make. This set consists of the tray with the pumpkin and leaf ‘charms’. I did two versions of this project – natural maple color for the first one and on the second one I used DecoArt Antiquing and Staining Medium along with DecoArt Acrylic paint to lightly tint the pumpkins, stems and leaves. This added a hint of color while allowing the natural grain of the maple to show through.
The fretwork border on the tray is probably what I would call an intermediate level scroll sawing pattern. There are 40 curls in the tray and it is a great chance to practice up on your turning skills on the saw. I really loved cutting this one and it took a total of about three hours to cut.
I hope you enjoy it! Sheila
