Back in Feb of 2013, I made a couple wood lily flowers and vases. I made them using compound scroll sawing.
My mother took them to her coffee club…........and all the ladies loved them. I decided to make 12 vases with 3 flowers per vase, or 36 flowers. It ended up being 420 pieces cut on the scroll saw!!
I finished the 12 sets of flowers in July, then placed the cherry vases in the Sun Room window to darken the cherry. I removed them today, 5 months later, and the cherry had appreciably darkened.
I am packaging them up today as Christmas gifts for the ladies in my family.
To review the trials & tribulations of making these wood flowers, see my web site for more details.
