Candle Sconce Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download Below

Every once in a while when I am sorting through scrap wood in my shop, I measure a few pieces and design a project that fits what I have. That is exactly what happened with this project. 

I did include two sizes for this pattern. The small version, shown above is cut from 1/2" thick wood and is 10" tall. It will hold a candle up to four inches in diameter. 

The large pattern is designed to use 3/4" thick wood. It is 15" tall and will hold a candle up to six inches in diameter. 

You can also use these sconces to hold other items like flowers. 

unattended use of candles can be dangerous. Please use caution or consider electric candles.

You can see in the photo above that I will sometime cut the wood down to the size of the patter. I do this so that I can cut as many of the straight sides as possible on the table saw. This is especially helpful for mating surfaces. If you don't have a table saw it is absolutely possible to cut this type of project on the scroll saw alone. Cut carefully and sand parts that don't fit well.

Highland Woodworker Video Series:

I have watched this YouTube show for years and this episode is one I wanted to share. Charles interviews George Wurtzel. George is an unsighted woodworker from Tennessee with outstanding skills. The show is entertaining and inspirational. 

If you don't subscribe to Highland Woodworking you should consider checking out the channel. It is a must-watch video for me.

Order Update:

I will be working extra hours today to get the Personalized Christmas Ornament orders completed today. I am just about four days out on orders that are pending. If you placed an order before Tuesday of this week you should have your order. If you don't have please check your spam folder. If you can't find it then send me an email and I will send them again.

I only have a few USB Catalog orders pending and should get those out today also. 

I have no outstanding paid, Personalized Signature Coin orders. I make and ship those on payment. I do have a few outstanding orders that the invoice has not yet been paid. If you have an order and need the invoice sent again just email me. 

Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns:

I am still making good progress on ornament patterns. I should be able to get caught up today. If you have orders in the queue, keep your eye on your email inbox.

The price is $1 per name with a 5 name minimum. I keep the price as low as possible
because I want everyone to have a chance to make these ornaments for family and friends.

You only pay after you have received the order and are 
100% satisfied with the patterns. Invoice included with
the pattern email. Pay by credit card(secure Paypal), check, or cash.

The patterns will be emailed to you after they are completed.
Please allow up to a week for delivery. 

You can use last names on the ornaments if you like but remember that the more letters the more
difficult they are to cut. Ten letters and up gets pretty small. If you need to you can enlarge the patterns by 10% to make the interior cuts larger. No special characters are supported. I can get a hyphen in there but it looks odd. It has to connect the two letters so it does not just fall out.

Personalized Pet Christmas Ornaments Ready to Order:

Sorry I have been so slow getting these Personalized Pet Christmas Ornament patterns ready. The order form is now live. The patterns are $2 per name with no minimum. The order form will take up to five names. If you need more than that I just fill out a separate form.

The ornaments include the year but you can cut that part of the pattern off if you prefer them without the year.

When you cut the veining on the ornaments you can add a touch of glue to the back after the vein is cut. This helps add strength back if needed.

$12 per sheet of 12 coins plus $3.50 shipping
