A few weeks ago I asked if I could build an Arrow of Light Ceremony Candle holder for my son’s Cub Scout Group, Pack 477. Of course I said yes. The Candle holders and Arrow are SYP, the base is 6/4 Popular. I milled the SYP from the a piece of 2X10 from the blue big box. I found a good straight and mostly clear piece right on top.
No special techniques or jigs used.
I would like to say a special thanks to tenontim for pointing me to the toy makers dye I used to color the wood. I wanted a bright finish that let the grain show through. The aniline dye was the perfect ticket. I will use this finish in the future. The overcoat is gloss clear coat from a spray can. The color is very sensitive to water. The Titebond II would cause the color to run.
The arrow is about 42 inches tip to tip. Thanks again to tenontim for the help.
