Just in time for Valentine’s Day! This is another candle tray that I designed. I cut it from bird’s eye maple and use the DecoArt Antiquing and Staining gel along with a little acrylic paint to add some color on the top of the hearts. It was a really fun design, and I think it would also be suitable for weddings, anniversaries and any time you are feeling just a little bit romantic.
I received a request from a customer to modify this design so he can use it as a dresser tray. I did this by making the center portion a bit wider and simplifying the heart design to make it work.
Bob Yates sent me a picture of how he combined this scroll saw project with lathe work to make this beautiful earring tree for his wife. He used padauk and the finial is of Amboyna Burl. What a wonderful variation he did on the design! Thank you so much, Bob!
I hope you enjoy seeing how fun it is to mix and match techniques in woodworking. Thanks for looking!
