Default Hummingbird Sconce for Mom for Christmas

Here is a Hummingbird Sconce I just finished for Mom for Christmas. It is Red Oak. The hummingbird is 1/2" and the shelf is 3/4" from the same board. It was cut with a #2 and 2/0 Spiral blade for the veining. I finsihed it with three coats of Deft Pray Lacquer.

I broke a couple of the outside wing feathers by not paying attention handling it and during sanding. CA is a life-saver....

I turned the finial froma larger piece of Red Oak that I matched colors as best as I could at Wood World TX.

The votive holder is from Michaels.

I bought this pattern from Scroller LTD. They also included a similar Sconce Patern with Butterflies and flowers which wil be for the In-Laws....

That is a great piece of work. I have to tell you a little story about humming birds. A couple years ago I was working just inside the garage door in the early Spring. A hummer came in and hovered about 2 feet in front of my face for a few seconds just like it was trying to tell me "OK I'm back, get the feeder out". I will never forget that moment.

What a cool pattern and your cutting is great, the final on the bottom is a nice touch.

Very nice work there Bob. I feed the hummer's all the time, winter & summer. They really need it in the summer here, when it is 110 degree's. She will love that piece & it will last a lifetime. Good Work. -- Perk
