This was made as a gift to my Mother for the Holidays. This pattern seemed to go well with a lot of the furniture in her home.
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 – I decided to use a lighter wood, but still stick to dark for the pieces that hang from the candle to lend some contrast.
Sheila’s patterns, as I said, are well done and easy to follow. That said, this pattern took WAY longer than I had imagined – there is a TON of individual holes and they all have multiple corners to get nice and sharp. I think I counted 178 individual holes, but who’s counting…... ;-)
The main body of the pattern is Redwood, with the extras done in Walnut.
The only finish is a deep soak in lemon oil.
Merry Christmas Mom!
