My wife asked if I would make her a new candle tray with a spring design. She was really wanting a votive size but chose the jar candle tray because of the butterfly design. The tray measures 7.5 inches across and the center is dropped down ¼ inch. There are four full size butterfly’s and six in profile, plus various leaves and other designs. I have one coat of mineral oil on it currently and it will get one or two more. After that several coats of spray polyurethane and then it is hers. I would say that his is the most detailed scrollsaw cutting I have ever tried but once finished I really enjoyed doing it.

The design for this tray is from Shelia Landry Designs and I can only say, thanks Shelia for making my wife happy again.

Thanks for looking.

As soon as I saw the image appear, I knew it was one of Sheila’s. :-)

Your work is wonderful – very detailed. Those tiny flowers couldn’t have been easy.

Great job!
