In decorating my golf man cave, I finally got around to making the wall sconces. I still have 4 more to do, but they will be the same style with different silhouttes.
The frame is 3/4” Cherry, and the silhoutte is scroll sawed 1/8” ply, and painted with a hammered metal type rattle can. They look like they’re hammered copper.
The glass i got from a local stained glass distributor. Each sconce uses 2 sq feet of glass (1/8” thick). I picked out the cheapest glass they had, so there’s $12 worth of glass in each.
The front and sides are beveled 14 degrees. They’re about 13” wide and 12” high, maybe 6” deep at the deepest. I have them on dimmers with a 60 watt bulb. They’re open on the top and bottom.
Each frame piece is an individual cut, so I built a few jigs to speed up the production process. The back is 3/4” cherry as well, since it can be seen.
