Another recent candle tray that I designed to be cut on the scroll saw. This time I used 1/2” maple to create the tray. The tight, even grain of the maple held up well to the intricately scrolled design. The strawberries themselves are overlay pieces, which give the piece depth and dimension.
I decided to stain and embellish this piece. While it looked nice in its natural finish, I felt that the staining using acrylic paint and DecoArt’s Staining and Antiquing Medium really made the tray look bright and colorful. As a final added touch, I used several hot fix rhinestones in the centers of the strawberry blossoms.
I hope you like it. Thanks for looking!
