They look beautiful Micky. Outstanding work on such detailed pieces. This pic is wonderful but would love to see a close up shot if possible. Regardless, thanks for the post!

This is really excellent for a first woodworking project. What is the see through stuff made of? If I wasn’t so A.D.D. (hyper) I might want want to try scrollsawing after seeing this post. I really like those lanterns!

First project!? WOW. The lanterns have a nice delicate look but seem to be well constructed for many years of enjoyment. If you’ve got the patience and skills for that kind of scrollsaw work, you can do anything! Thanks for sharing.
