These are the ideal size for hanging in a window and letting the sun shine through the plexiglass. They were fun and I enjoyed making them.

The picture measures 8” x 8” x 1/4”, thats with the plexiglass, and Baltic Birch. I finished them with spray poly. I put fishing line so they could hang from a suction cup in the window. The colored plexiglass is attached to the back with epoxy.

The pattern is designed by Volker Arnold and I got it out of the Scroll Saw Workshop magazine, summer 2006.

Very classy, even exquisite!

I love how the frame isn’t just your average shape, but includes the trees and branches.

The plexi is a really good idea as well – I’ll have to remember that.

Great work Kelly!
