Compound Cut Tea Light Candle Stand Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download Below
I recommend battery-powered tea light candles for safety.

I received an email yesterdays asking how compound cut scroll saw patterns are cut. I designed this simple tea light candle stand and included complete instructions to complete the project in the pattern book.

My 3D clamp jig is not absolutely necessary to make compound cuts but it does make it easier. You will see that I use this jig in the instructions of the Tea Light Candle Stand. You can also use quick clamps or a hand screw clamp to hold the wood.

I buy these Poplar 1.5" X 1.5" X 36" boards at Home Depot. They work very well for compound cut patterns as long as you only need 1.5". I rarely cut anything thicker. This is what I used for the candlestick

Holiday Gifts:

The last few months have been difficult for most of us. This holiday season could be even more challenging, especially for those of us over a certain age with health conditions. Travel will likely be limited if at all. Visiting with family and friends for the holidays may even be interrupted.

All of this turmoil makes it extremely important to show others that we care and wish them a happy holiday season. 

Obviously, a phone call or even a card will be appreciated but as crafters, we can go one step further. A hand made gift shows that you were taking the time to do something special for a person. 

There are over 500 holiday-themed scroll saw patterns in my free online pattern catalog. Just visit the catalog and select the Holiday category. Many of these patterns are small enough to be able to easily ship. If you don't find something you like in the holiday category there are thousands of other patterns to choose from.
