Here is my latest plane fan I have hand carved from mahogany. I had these old candelabra lights that are french hand hammered sheet metal antiqued painted . I choose the motive because of the lights I followed a vine design that led into the light ends. I hand carved this 8/4 piece also with this tail section as a single vine. I installed little candelabra lights into the end of the vine an ran a wire into a wire chase underneath. I then painted and sanded the primer . I then painted the vines yellow and stained it with a dark brown finishing glaze . The best part is I put these little flicker lights in and added a beautiful kinetic light. It all works great together. All this and Heaven too.
