This was made as a gift to my Sister and her Husband for the Holidays. With the last name of “Arnold”, picking which pattern to cut wasn’t too difficult. ;-)

For anyone wondering, this is a pattern from our own “ScrollGirl”, Sheila Landry. She makes fantastic patterns and has a wonderful website as well. She also posts a daily blog titled “My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer” here on LJ’s.

Pic 3 is a picture from Sheila’s pattern – The only change was to cut the extra bits that hang from the candle out of Cherry so they contrasted a tad.

Sheila’s patterns, as I said, are well done and easy to follow. The only thing I was careful to do was to get the inside points as accurate and “sharp” as I could.

The main body of the pattern is Walnut, with the extras, as I stated, in Cherry.

The only finish is a deep soak in lemon oil.

Merry Xmas, Angela and Rick!

Great looking tray. I have cut many of Shelia’s patterns but not that one. You did a great job as usual. Thanks for posting.

Sharp looking corners, sharp looking piece.
Just out of curiosity, what do you do with all the cut out pieces, do some lucky kids get to glue them up in weird montages?
