This is one of my latest new candle trays that I designed. It created from 1/2” maple on the scroll saw. The center of the tray is bevel cut so that the frame is slightly raised from the table, giving the tray a bit more depth and interest.
For this design, I created eight dragonfly figures that are attached to the tray with dowels. this gives the appearance of them flying around the tray.
I show this tray in two versions – one that is stained with acrylic paints and staining and antiquing medium by DecoArt and the other with a mineral oil finish followed by spray lacquer.
I really enjoy designing these trays and plan to do many more. Thanks for looking. :)
