This is the latest Candle Tray and Charm Set that I have created – just in time for Halloween! It measures 8” in diameter and is scroll sawn of half inch thick padauk. The two pumpkin charms which hang from the ribbon are made of 1/8” padauk. I finished them with several coats of mineral oil, and then spray shellac. The natural color of the wood is amazing! I hope you like it!

Fantastic! I love that it features eight different pumpkins instead of a repeating pattern!

The padauk really goes with the image.

Truly an awesome pattern!

I agree with Cosmo, the crispness of your designs shows your true ability. I also love the various pumpkin faces. Now I remember what charms are.
