If you want to practice your 3D scroll saw cutting skills this pattern is for you. The pattern is easy to cut but you do need to be precise. The hole in the top needs to be drilled dead center and you need to follow the pattern lines close.
The blank needs to be 1 1/2" x 1 1/2". Use a 3/4" forstner bit to drill the top before you apply the pattern. Make sure you mark the depth of the hole so you don't go too far.
I used a small piece of construction grade 2x4 and ripped it to 1 1/2". I used a vice to hold the piece on my drill press and drilled the hole. I then applied the pattern and carefully cut side one. Flip the piece to side two and continue to cut out the pattern.
If you have never done any 3D cutting before I have a couple of videos in the video library that explain the technique and how to make a 3D cutting jig if you like. The videos are from several months back but are good reference material for this project.

Important. This piece is not heavy enough to handle a candle. It is for decoration only.
