I am catching up on posting some of my projects here. This is another candle tray and charm set that I have designed. It is a Celtic knot design that I scrolled out of half inch maple. The charms are cut from 1/8” maple. I used several coats of mineral oil for the finish, followed by a spray lacquer to somewhat protect it. The center of the tray is bevel cut on a 4 degree angle so that the center drops down approximately 1/4” and raises the scrolled border, giving the tray some interest. I hope you enjoy it.

Shelia, there is no need to “hope” people will enjoy this. It speaks for itself. Thanks for posting.

I love the geometry of this project. Complicated yet clean. Good post, Sheila.

It is really quite relaxing to do designs such as these. I love cutting them. I think that it is much more intimidating that it really is. This design in particular is quite sturdy and not difficult to do. Just look at it as one cut at a time. Would love to hear that you are scrolling, Bob!

Thanks to you all for the positive comments. They mean a lot to me!

I love ALL your celtic designed items – I think you put an original “spin” on the traditional design that interests people – great work on this one as well!

Boy, I feel really stupid! I was on my page and just now realized that I have this project in twice. I don’t know how I did that. :? I apologize for doing that, as I would have surely noticed if it was already in my projects. What the heck?? I think I am losing it!

In any case, I just wanted to apologize. It wasn’t intentional.
